ot the United Slates will quit work and 
cause the mlnea to be shut dowr prob-

few days before April 1. wiien the pre-

Officials of the miners' union today 
decided to take no action on the wage 
dispute of the anthracite miners' tmlon 
until after there has been a settlement 
of differences with the bituminous 'coal 
miners, or a disagreement. This means the coal situation will remain un-

'-^^^- e nelghborhddd of 180, to 
to Mr. Helrav,Ken. Mr. 
^»LS chairman, and traced 
frogresB of the DevelCp- 
latlon of the district, which 
Ullr. Helmcken'a special care. 
iRbnUEtlt down the minister of 
M'^P'l^et the residents in 
p6^aiL"^ii(^J%l|£ir.«r.0und for himself, 
v^iX»0i!0^0§^m^n they had ask- 
ed tor rb^a they bid got them. He 
would answer. the question that every- 
JUili'JWiK^ *"*'*"" Just now: "Who was 
IMVOnnBi^* tor the dismissal of the ml» 
-superintendent of roads," by saying that 
iia une ItaJ dono thls, icast ot all Mr. 
Helmcken: Mr. Peatt had merely com- 
mitted suicide. He had only himself to 
blame tor his loss ot place. 

Mr. Helmcken traced the history ot 
his connection with tha Sooko district, 
and the progress of the Development 
Aesoclation, which enabled the people of 
the district to, as they had a right, make 
their wishes known \a.t^0ij^^,t& their 
own affairs. It had al^^MiM|Mlil-'e> Pleas- 
ure and a honor to workTfwiftem either 
as their member or even when he had 
suffered defeat, but yet had some Influ- 
ence In. respect to the patronage for-.the 
district. He was proud of the loyal sup- 
port he had received, aiid glad to have 
been able to do something. 

Mr. Hclmckon touched on the record 
of the McBrlde government, which had 
brought In a railway policy which they 
had been working upon for years. There 
was practically no opposition to this 
even on the part of the LlbecalSi and he 
would pass on to the railway dovclop' 
inent of the Island. He would remind 
those present he had pointed out In 1908 
that tho presence of the C. N. R. on the 
Island would wake up the C. P. R., and 
thle had been verified, and within a few 
years the people would see railways all 
round the Island. He accepted the gov- 
ernment's policy as to the timber hold- 
ings and the land; If they were weak 
points- in It, he would strive to amend 

The planus in his platform were: A 
Ht.Tntiard ntinlmiim wase as ndoptrd In 
l!;t.- '.i'.y for work on th" rondB In ccun- 
tr' ul.strlcte. where the people felt the 
pluoh of high prices even more than the 
dwellers In the city. An eight-hour in 
place of a nine-hour day at the name 
work, aiid the exclusion of aliens from 
any governinont work. 

He had hoped to have got through this 
contest without making personal refer- 
ences, but he was compelled to answer 
.some charges that had been made by his 
opponents. Mr., R. H. Pooley had made 
a atatenient — t'cferrlng to some of his 
remarks about the Esquimau Water 
Works- — to the cffpct that his father. Mr. 
C. K. Pooley, had done his bpst to modify 
the bill relating to that company when 
It was Introduced in 1886, but had been 
unable to effect thl.s. But Mr. C. B. 
I'ooliv wan actually In charwe of that 
bill, a private bill, and had power to do 
wliat he pleased with it. 

All knew how unsatisfactory the state 
of the road had been .since the comjiany 
dug It up. He was not opposed to In- 
duFlrlal development, but the stronft arm 
of the government was needed to keep 
laige corporations in their place. No 
charter could depriye the public of its 
just rlBhts. Yet the road, which was 
their.", had been 

in spite of remonstrances from the gov- 
ernment, to whlrh the company had paid

Gold Output of the Season Es-

M Young Returns from His 
Well Satisfied Constituency 

Premier McBride Leaves 
Shortly for London to Take 
Up Question with Board of 


VANCOUVER, B. C, March 2».— The 
Important announceruent was made by 
the Hon. W. J. Bowser, at a mef-ting In 
Ash hall tonight, that Fremler .McBrlde 
would leave shortly after the eiectlon.s 
for London, to take up With the board of 
directors of the B. C. Electric Railway 
Compiny. the whole question of the 
company's franchises In Vancouver and 
the surrounding municipalities. In 
fully explaining Uie attitude of tlie pro- 
vjncl^ government on this question, 
Mr. Bowser declared that It did not 
want to bo forced Into legislation which 
might weaken the wtablllty of this pro- 
vince in the eyes of tho investing pub- 
lic of the Empire's capital. .V great 
deal of the Atlorncy-Gencral's speech 
was devoted to a coBBlderatlon of the 
financial standing of the province, and 
the favor In which U was regarded aa 
a field for Investment sind he ga\e 
Htatlstlcs to show how British (.Columbia 
nari been financially regeiifrnted. 

'i'he subject had particular Interest 
for the ward in which Mr. Bowser wiui 
spfaklng, and he reminded his audience 
iliat before di.itrlct Jot 301 and Hast- 
ings lownslto becamo porllon.s of the 
city, they were unotganlzud territories 
an-fl under the government. 

Hon. Dr. Young, provincial secretary 
and minister ot education, returned to 
the C^apltal yesterday, after a ten days' 
visit to bis constituency of Atlln, hlB 
tour to and from the North having been 
a peculiarly delightful one. rendered 
none the less enjoyable by the mlttls- 
tfcr's re-election by acclamation as Atr 
itip's representativB in the Ibcat parlia- 
ment. Having read his own title clear 
politically, it was Hon. Dr. Young's 
intention to stop .over. at Prince Rupert 
ahd one or two other placea In the 
Skeena district to assist Mr. William 
SSansoR in bis campaign, but tU». was 
found to be impossible, the American 
Pteamwr Humbpldt—whlch he. caueht at 
Skagway — being unable to call at a 
northern Canadian, port. The Humboldt 
proceeded direct to Seattle, from which 
city the minister crossed to Victoria yes- 

"Sunshine all the time," summarlaes 
Hon. Dr. Young's account ot his trip. 
Not a cloudy day occurred from the 
time of his departure from this city un- 
til that of his return, while the weather 
in the north Was almost ppi'lTigllke. 

"There wasn't an Inc' 1 the 

glassy ice of the rivers. _ l oung 
enthusiastically yesterday, "and I had 
no use for fur coat or parkl on all the 
trip — didn't even need a cap. Wore this 
llRht hat, the one I wear here, all tho 
time." ' 

No serious- oppoBllioti to Hon. Dr. 
Young m this campaign was even so 
much as suggcste'l, and the fact that ha 
would be returned by unanimou.s choire 
of the riding was 

A Torogone Conclusion 
almost from the first intimation of the 

"Conditions in Atlln are especially 
.satisfactory and encouraging," says the 
returned Mlnl.ster, "and tho gold output 
for the season promises to eclipse that 
of any year since the birth of the dls- 
Iflot a.s a placer fi'ld. Last season thf 
gold commissioner' .« Btatement shows 
approximately fSOO.OOO to have been the 
gold yield of the district, but as tho 
official record takoa cognizance only of 
that portion of the otitput upon which 
rnynlty Is colltctable,, exempting $3,000 
in each case, this is coiialderably under 
the actual production total. Speaking 
the triip total exceeded half a million, 
th etrue total exceeded half a million, 
and thlB season It will well over-run 
J75O.O00, and may reach a mllHon. 

"The weather (conditions have been 
such that the Individual miners have 
been able to w6ik steadily throughout 
the winter, and as a consequence every- 
body Is feeling sBtlsfUd and contented 
in the district nnd ntoney is plentiful.

LONDON, March 28.— The Pekln cor-

the HKwt Important feature in refer- 
ees. .to .the. propoaed loans, is... the . 
struggle to obtain control of the sliver 
market In China, inasmuch as virtual 
free coinage of that metal, which is 
Inevitable means an endless demand 
for sliver. At present observers believe 
that the success of the Russo-Belglan

but it there wag any expectation of 
disconcerting the prime minister it

the disturbers ot the meeting that all

so was sharply tripped up in a mi.s-

Mr. -Graham would not bs as strict lis 
he should be with mine managers like 
Mr. Stockett of the W<?Bt«»rn Fuel On. 
or Mr. Charles Graham of the Nicola 
district. He went on to speak of the 
latter as being manager of the Dia- 
mond Vale mine, where seven men 
were killed the other day, and after 
proceeding for some time along that 
line, a man in the audience corrected 
him as to the mine of which Mr. Gra-

Mr. Williams was taken aback for 
the instant, but was understood to 
promise some sort of authority lor his 
statement before Wednesday. 

Hon. Mr. MoBrlde was received with 
cheers and at once plunged into -a re- 
ply to Mr. Williams' criticisms of the 
mines' de'partment. He pointed < out 
that the adoption of the Draegem oxy-

ment itself acting on what was seen 
to be doing elsewhere — an announce- 
ment whicli was news to the audience, 
which had been led by Mr. wniliams 
to believe that he did it-all. 

On the point of Mr. Graham's ap- 
pointment, the premier said that Mr. 
Graham was chosen because he had 
an Al record in the mlnea where he 
had been employed, nnd was first In 
hl.s calling in the province. There was 
no ijuestion of his politics or his con-

NAiNAIMO, March 23.— The once 
burning question of settlers' rlgrhte 
flamed Into a brief bla*o last nljfht In 
a question put to the premier at the 
close of his address. Mr. D. J. Thomas, 
u former Liberal candidate aalted what 
the government intended to do In re- 
gard to granting coal rights to set- 
tlers In the E. & N. belt who had not 
filed their claims within the time al- 
lowed by the act. Mr. McBrlde re- 
minded his questioner that tho Set- 
tlers' l^lghts tct carried the case as 
fur a.s the privy council and won out. 
If it had not b^en for Ralph Smith go- 
ing out aiM ' ■ lug tUo people by 
teiliiig.thoni governjiieafi plan 

was all political rattletrap, those who 
had been deluded by his tlrado would 
have got their rights as well as the 
others. The premier told Mr. Thomas 
that he did not propose to be bullied 
and ht' t a promise at this 

time. I ion now before the

statements had beeo maAa X»J0mi^n^, 
Mr. Pooley's, .■ oandWature..*, XCfeJ||i|8f* 
should be more careful aa; to iltV ioSa- 
pany he ran with. 

Mr, Helmcken read qorrespondence re- 
lating to tbe dismissal of Mr. Peatt to 
substantiate his emphatic denial that he 
had had anything to do with the dis- 
missal of that gentleman. These w»» re 
small matter.^, but ^^^i|M^B^I|pi^'' ^^ 

If he were returned to parliament, 
there ■was one thing to which he Intend- 
ed to devote his energies, and that was 
to secure -the pioneer, the man who had 
done so much for the country by hi •» 
personal labors, from undue taxation of 
his lands, which had the tendency to 
force him to dispose of them. Because 
some one In a district dlsposid of Ws 
land, at a high figure, tbait was no ua- 
flon why all his neighbors shoui.l havo 
their holdings assessed at a, corrp^pond- 
Ing inflated figure. They should not be 
thus penalized for the part they had 
taken or were taking In developing the 
land. (Loud cheers.) 

He would also endeavor to procure a 
policeman for Sooke, not because ,Sooke 
poople-nioeded JUife' attontlbBs nOf <euch ,an 
ofticer. but because strangers were com- 
ing into this district in large numbers. 

In conclusion he reminded his audi- 
ence of the splendid record of Mr. Mc- 
Brlde m all that related to the promo- 
tion of the prosperity and progress of 
the province, and said that under his 
government the people would be nssurca 
a continuance of good government and 
even greater prosperity. 

,'!Mr. J. A. Murray hoped that' "that' 
coy maiden, Esquimau, would choose 
out of her five suitors a good loving 
husband and a good provider." (Laugh- 
ter.) Mr. Hclmcken's record in the past 
was warrant of what he would do in tho 
future, and he would urge the electors 
to vote for the man whom they knew, 
and who was always with them.

'•TW Indication? ar« thai the adnUnls- 
'l|»ttoa. of Vbtcli Ur^ Hiohard McBride 
^Is tbe trusted leader, will be endorsed 
''■m^ the polls on Thursday next as no 
«ther sovemment in Canada has ever 
b«en endorsed.. So certain does this ap- 
pear to be that many Liberals take the 
position that it would have been wt«p 
from the party standpoint not to have 
put any candidates In the field. It Is 
worth while Inquiring how It has come 
about that such an unprecedented poli- 
tical condition has arisen In this prov- 
. Ince. Our Liberal friends have -not 
endeavored to explain it, ana we thlnU 
with good reason, for they would have 
to concede that It Is due to the excel- 
lence of the Administration, or to the 
weakness of the Opposition, oir to both. 
Our own explanation is ih&t the ex- 
cellence of the Administration has de- 
stroyed all opposition except that of a 
partisan nature. It is not assuming too 
. macb to puppose that, if the govern- 
ment h»d been guilty of ||fy serious 
sets tit inalf«a»anc6, or of any notable 
fteglect during its toA ysara of officft 
some one would have pointed it out In 
Buob a manner that the pubUo would 
- have regarded It as calling for.e^lana- 
tion. Of crltfcism. not jalway* «» fair 
and b()n«st ay It might be. tb«r« bas 
bMn aa idMittteiiea. but the publlo lia» 
not b«en iinpressed thereby. The fact 
that nearly a decade of Conservative 
government has passed, and there is 
not toilay a single specific act of policy 
or administration, in regard to whioli 
the Qppdvlliott liave been ipible to pro- 
duce upon the public aia impression un- 
, itavorable to Mr. Mc3ride and \Am 9ol* 
.; leagues, demeotatrates in the most «on> 
olusive way possible that the affaira of 
'Ithe Prdvince have been carried on s(\ 
%t to produce restUts satisfactory to the 
t^euple. TUero ««al}y ^oes not seem 
to be any way of escaping this conclu- 
sion, which, we think is one that any 
reasonable, unprejudiced person would 
draw from thf facts as <they stand to- 
day. If wc sbould read that, in any 
Other province bf Canada or any part 
of the {iiropin. tiie governatrnl W«m so 
antrenebed In popular favor that it was 
confrontsd With only a formal opposi- 
tion, tbo cdnclUBlon we would reach 
,!irould be that, although the govem- 
'jnieat doubtless might have^ made errors 
In minor details, its generjiil policy and 
Its general conduct of affpirs were siU- 
Isfaetory to the pitavple €t large. Wa 
ftote that our LiberU frteMs bave not 
advanced a single proposition as an al- 
ternative to tbe government policy In 

any of U»^si4^M0Nrt*- ^l^ev' li^*** «iv«a 
absolutely iii reason why they should 
be eatr^ff^idl with office, pr cited a 
valid reason why the presence of one 
of their ,o«w^^i^,<4];i.t&« nmiaa would 
be qf ffdTttatijN ttt ,iXm eoutttry. An 
Opposition that stands for some prin- 

no piae* In «ii^ a^UfSIb liriNtirlianentery 
government for an Opposition that 
simply opposes. 

This great result was achieved not by 
tho imposition of taxation, but by the 
Judicious utilization of the great natural 
resources of the province. There were, 
it is true, a few additional taxes impos- 
ed, but the receipts from them formed 
only a small part o< the revenue. We 
r«i!«kt that the testomtlon of the pro- 
vtnclfil credits puBul the change df a 
heavy deftolt into ate xiifipMo«lent«^ f^t- 
plus was the result of the Judicious iitll- 
lintton of the natural resources of the 
province. Criticism bas been directed 
aaalnat tbe maoaer in which revenue 
has been derived from these resources. 
It is only fair to state the nature of this 
criticism, but in so doing we shall strip 
it of adjectives, with which those who 
employ it bolster it up to make It appear 
formidable. The use of adjectives Is. to 
use a famous simile, like painting a lath 
to tnuke U look IJkG iron. The obi«f 
sources of receipts from natural re- 
sources have been land sales and timber 
licences. The allegation has been made 
that the sale of crown lands has retard- 
ed the settlement of the country. The 
facts completely disprove this contcn- 

By fAr 

[. ,N i«ice as murli for the privilege, and 
lwlc^• aM much for thf timber, and he must 
ciU his timbers and take care of hlB-Uni- 
ii.M ll^ lie Bimll be directed by the gov- 
ernment from time to time. To call such 
a policy as this the surrender of th« re- 
sources of the province to speculators is 
to Insult the Intelligence of the public. 

Having by these means and others, 
Into which space forbids us to enter, 
piabW me irovince in a sound pool- 
tion financially, the government decid- 
ed to take 'such steps as might be found 
advisable to reduce the direct taxes of 
the people, and with that object a Royal 
Commission on Taxation was appointed. 
The report of that Commission, which 
wan not made in time to permit of Uio 
preparation and passage of the icglsla- 
ticsn necessary to give It effect, but 
which th* Premier has stated will' be 
aote<l upon at.«|)*.;,4pil'fiMl«fl|L «« «»*

of the community. Even tbe Loader o* 
the OppositioiS gave it bis unaualifled 
approvaL The puHcy «! thfeYsS^St, asd 
it is tbe policy of the government, is 
to derive as much as possible of tho 
revenue of the country from natural 
resources and lighten as far as possible 
the direct burdens of the peopls. 

With a full treasury, restored pro- 
vincial credit and an assured yearly In- 
come, the Government was able to in- 
augurate a policy of provincial develop- 
ment. I'or this purpose Mr. McBride 
resolved to employ both the money and 
the credit of the Province, feeling that 
the only proper use to put the aocum- 
ulated millions to was the provisioh of 
needed public works, and that the pro- 
vincial credit could be safely employed 
In assisting the construction of neces- 
sary railways. It is needless to re- 
capitulate what has been accomplished 
In this way, or to go over the plans 
which the Premier bas told us be has 
in view for additional Oavelopment 
work. The effect Of thl» polloy of pro- 
gress Is seen ob every hand, and ev.ecy 
line of business and indaatry is feeling 
the beneficial consequegcea The whole 
Province ttas recelvad stieb an Impetus

of the world.

thu greater part of the settlement of the 
province during the past ten years has 
been upon land privately owned. Pre- 
emption, as a means of settling the vac- 
ant areas of 'the province, has been 
proved by years of -trial to be very 
largely a failure. There are areas in 
this province open to pre-emption on 
which there is not a single settler; there 
♦«re other areas, no better situated or 
more suitable for cultivation, where pri- 
vate owners have built up very prosper- 
ous communities. The policy of permit- 
ting private persons to acquire large 
areas of crown lands, which it will be

actual Battlers, sbould be Judged by Its

Th**|MM8fi«libla is developing among 
miMpiiklllk. Stop Itt This remark has 
no ilSriB^rence to ' the unfortunate acci- 
dent of Krlda>'. 

y^i Why has the opposition to the M«- 
r#'lirl,de administration resolved Itself 
into a mere effort to keep a political 
party alive? The answer is to be 
found in tha>lN(Mr4 of the ministry. 
When Mr. M^pi|pV«00k office he was 
confronted with' two principle problems. 
One of' them was how the public credit 
could be most speedily restored, and the 
iMlica- was how the province could be 
most Kpcedlly and advantageously de- 
veloped. His most hostile critic will 
not deny that he has placed provlnclisir 
credit on a very high plane or that he 
baa been instrumental In inaugurating 
wot-ks or development on a scale com- 
mensurate with the greatness of the 
Province and the reasonable aspirations 
of the people. When he took office 
there was a heavy overdraft in the 
bank wliose managers were In a posi- 
tion to Impose their will upon any 
government that mig^t be in power. 
We db not claim that • Mr. MoBrlde's 
pr<!dcceB8or8 were lacking In n sense of 
ilic possibilities Of our Imperial domain. 
There Is no need of dlsciin-slng this, for

more aeceptabla stn^i rrf^'iuw-iMHtekf^ 
suits than either the sale of landf in 
large areas or the pre-emption plan. It 
is easy to call the man, who buys a tract 
of land, subdivides it and sells it to set- 
tlers, a speculator; but that proves noth- 
ing. If to pay the government for land, 
to survey and subdivide it, to advertise 
it; to bring it personally under the at- 
tention of ipersonS suitable to become 
settlers; to bring the settlers to the 
lancl; to assist them In making homes; 
tb give them long tlmei for payment; to 
establish communities in lieu of isolated 
farms; if to do these things on the 
chance of making a moderate profit is 
speculation, then we suppose the land 
companies are speculators; but they are 
doing a gx^kt work for the province. 

In respect to timber licences w« frank- 
ly confess to be unable to see how the 
critics of this branch of the govern- 
ment's policy have been able to convince 
thomselves that It la in any sense ob- 
jectionable. The province parts with 
nothing when It gives a timber licence, 
except the right to cut the timber. It 
does not sell the land; It does not sell 
thn timber. It does not oven close the 
land to eottlemont. It docs not bind It- 
self to accept a certain sum a-t rent or 
a certain royalty on the timi it 

reserves the right to Increase uuiic: of

We have a letter from Mr. R. L. 
Drury, which when published ought to 
be accompanied by some comment. As 
there is no space available for the 
comment today, the letter is withheld 
for the present. 

Germany seems to be determined to 
add straws to the already heavily bur- 
dened camel's back. This needless 
wastefur diversion of men and money 
from peaceful industries- to warlike 
preparations means national bankruptcy 
sooner or later. The end of the fever- 
ish haste to provide armaments cannot 
be far off.. f- 

The noble way In which the well-to- 
do people of Great Britain are respond- 
ing to the demands upon them arising 
out of the distress caused by the coal 
.strike is worthy of ^e highest praise. 
It has been a time of deep trial, but 
tlie prospects are that the nation will 
come out of It stronger aiid more united 
than ever. Ood grant that it may be sol

'™'i^t'Gila further information from him 
on the matter, which will be discussed 
again at a meeting of the club to be 
held later. The promoters of the scheme 
are .of the opinion that the great event 
which In 1867 welded the provinces of 
eastern Canada Into one should bo flt- 
ingly recognized, and' in order to do 
this they advocate thn start of Ave years 
80 that the celebration when it does take 
place may be fully worthy of the great 
occasion, Its observation in the lARt 
West ralffht be fittingly repreaentecl by 
a provincial celebration akin to the plohr. 
eers' celebration at Xew Westminster 
four years ago, only on a more exten- 
sive and elaborate a scale. 

Katcbery Tor 7ish Xiaka — 'At the first 
of the coming " month, Mr, I.edgerwood 
of the Seton I<ake hatchery will leave 
with a. crew of Ave men for Brldg« 
river, wTiere, under Instructions from tho 
provincial nsherles dejKirtment, they 
win establish a hatchery at Fish lake 
for the propagation of trout. Only a 
temporary camp wlll'thls yecr be estab- 
lished, a«t ihe work Is In the experimen- 
tal stage as yet, but if the undertaking 
gives encouraging roaults, permanent 
bulldlng.s will next year be erected, and 
the hatchery become a fixture in the 
district. The special object of the' un- 
dertaking is to stock six or aeven lakeM 
in the Bridge river region that are now 
barren, end also to supply fry to other 
lakfM and .slreama throughout the in- 
terior as the dish supply therein be- 
comes depleted. At presont there are 
two men employed at Klsh lake whip- 
sawing lumber for the tempornry bulld- 
Inara. so that there will be no delay 
In Initiating oporatl(>n« when Mr. Ledg- 
erwood and hl.s pnrly arrive on the 
sround. At the Scton lake hatchery 
thpro hovn been already planted this 
season about nineteen million healthy 
young humpbacks, and there are about 
f;l'j\en million more )ct to go ia.

gaging the attention of the medical 
health officer and the city council. In- 
structions are being issued to livery- 
niea wltii a view to preserving their 
premises from becoming nuisances to 
the general public. Under the present 
bylaw there la dlfflctilty experienced in 
enforcing sanitary conditions, but It is 
claimed that once the new bull<)lli)g by-

Ttat Baaenia StUfW-^It has been 
tbotiirht well to postpone the proposed 
public meeting of the property owners 
of James Bay and Victoria West In the 
interests of the bascule bridge acro^ 
from the reserve to lAurel POlnt.^ uhtu 
f^teJ the provincial Sections. The ihoTe- 
meat has, however, aroused tba greatest 
interest in the ture sectfona of tbe city

that an organlsati<ya wUl be formeii

So far, the demands for women's 
work outside the 4iome have gone be- 
yond the supply. The "rvn<=^...K-.Ao€. has 
been that even the ini have 

suffered. ,In bur owa country we have 
Been an attempt mode to ween girls 
away from the lure of the city anil to 
elevate her work of home-making Into 
a professlo'n. There are departments of 
domestic science In our colleges whore 
graduates In arts turn their attention 
to tho old homely duties upon which 
science has shed a new llRht. In the 
old land gentlewomen whoae mothers 
had many servants, ure training them- 
.lelvos to do the work of the kitchen. 
Many women see In thin movement tho 
solution of a very difficult problem. 

A writer In the New York Outlook, 
however, does not tUInk that relief will 
come from this direction. She consid- 
ers thot, so far from re«torlng the old 
Industries to the home, more and more 
of them will, by the progress of In- 
vention, be. rem<>v«.rt from Jt. Elec- 
tricity Is fast taking tho place of wo-

but even this will be only temporary. 
Speaking of housewives who have chosen 
to send th«>lr clothes to a laundry and 
employ a profcflslonAI cl.'aner. the writer 
says: "Their experler.res show tho la- 
bor-saving device, modern ns It Is. In

The report from South Africa Is that 
the veldt has produced another Reggie 
Walker for the eprlnts, and his first 
acquaintance with AmbrtCans atfd oth- 
er crack competitors will be at Stock- 
holm. The name of the newcomer. Is 
<; H. Patching. His experience on the 
i>aiii extends over a period of two years, 
but It Is only lately that he has shown 
Ills true form, which Is said to be well 
In.Hidfc: eveip flguree for both tho 100 
jards and 220 yards. In the month of 
June, 1910, when but a greoh performer, 
PatcMng surprised the public at Pretoria 
by winning the furlonjr on a poor track. 
In '^2 1-5 eecon'i iire which v 

iiccppted as tile uth African 

cord and which adorns tho books at 
present. Since then Patching lias had 
tiome good coaching with the id«a that 
he shonW be ytoll wound up for the 
Olympic game8^ It was tht intention 
to keep him lit* tho dark, tho same as 
was done With W.ilkcr four year.s ago, 
nnd spring him on the Tnnkces and 
Mrilishers at tho lost moment for a 
genuine Btnention. Very little had been 
done about Walker previous to the Eng- 
lish Olympic, but In the eeoond round 
of the 100 metres, when ho. tied the 
Ulynrplc record by coming home In 10 
4-5 Bfecond.H, It dawnod on those looking 
on that tliey were watching a real dark 
one. It Is ancient history now how he 
bent Rector » yard in the flnal. asaln 
doing 104-6 seconds. The same plan of 
campaign was mapped out for Patching,

Garrison, «; A, O- F., 1. James Bay 
defeated Y.M. C. A. by defatUt. 

By far the most interesting game of ; 
the Morley Cup series yeste^da,j- iwae 
that In which the Sons of England and 
Victoria West figured, the former play- 
ing surprisingly well. The result was 
a 2-2 draw. The match- took place at 
Beacon HIU before a fairly large 
avu) :.'•'•'• Strange to say.' the teams 
di- nors most evenly, the Wests 

scuni.H i.>vo goals in the openin-g period. 
Messrs. .Peden and Sed«er being respon- i 
sible; while in the second- hs^l^f Hymc- 
nnd Kerley, for the Kon^, put thei 
>a8ls. Kefereo Allen 
iorabla criticism. Tlie 
Wests complained 'bitterly when he 
gave the Sons of England a second 
penalty after they bad sent the ball 
over tho bars. In the f ix'st instance 
stating that Prevost had crossed the 
penalty line. The second effort was 
successful. It put the Sons one bebind 
the green Jerseys. About seven min- 
utes from time Kerley managed to 
oven matters. 

In the Garrison-A.O.F. matcli, which 
was played at Work Point barracks, the 
former were the victors, 6-1. The For- 
esters held the soldiers down fairly 
well in the first period. They were 
able to make but one point. In the sec- 
ond half six goals were made, one for 
the A. O. I', and five for the home team. 
The Osrrlflon's g^als were secured as 
follows: Oreatorex, 2; Brown, 1; Taj-lor.

Charlie did exactly right In stopping th a 
fight when he did, and disqualifying the 
Callfornian. The boxing commission has 
Introduced several now rules of late, and 
good ones, and It's up to the referees to 
enforce them. White Is the first to make 
trouble for a refractory boxer, and In 
doing so has set a good example for 
others In his position to follow. The 
really unfortunate part of the affair was 
that the spectators were the only suf- 
ferers. The( commission should take 
steps to protect the public against such 
rtascos in the future.

Packey McFarland made short work 
of Kid Burns in their return match at 
Kenosha. Burns, whoso sole claim to 
fame rested on the black eye withwhioh 
he decorated McFarland when the boys 
boxed In New York some few weeks 
since, was never in the hunt, and his 
seconds were forced to throw up the 
sponge in the eight round. Friends of 
mine who ran up from Chicago to see 
the match say that Packey fought like 
a member of the vendetta. He was mer- 
ciless In attack and cut Burns' face to 
ribbons. And all on account of tho 
memory of a discolored optic.

At the Goiasti-cam hotel last night, 
Mr. R, H. Pooley, in pursuance of hlB 
candidature for the representation oi 
tho Esquimau district, returned to the 
attaclc on the question that has been 
raised in regard to the asBoclatlon of 
the Hon. C. B. Popley with the Esqul- 
malt Water Works Company. Mr, 
Pooley aitoted the Journals of the houBe

accompanied by Mr. W. BWunooffi, wbo 
delivered a short address on tha attitude 
ot the opposition, ahowlnc fhat they are 
making no serious attempt to fight the 
government. The chair . was taken by 
Mr. Bvan BumiBtt, and there were about 
tliirly pfeavnt. 

After again denyying the allegation 
that had been made against him In re- 
gard to the road superintendent getUng 
back his Job if he were elected for the 
constituency, Mr. Pooley at once took 
up the larger issue involving the honor 
of his father. He said: 

"An0lh6k' mailer that I wish to clear 

up once and for all Js that relating to 
tho Esquimau Water Works Company. 
We know that the roads haye been in a 
disgraceful condition, especially where .

ask you to remember that It la not poa-

owners and residents. It hag bein'sald 
that Mr. Pooley was solicitor for the 
company and a Bharenoider at the time. 
On that point they are wt-ong also. 1 
have here the transcript evldoace of the 
case In which It is sworn "that he never »- 
had anything to do with tho comlN()||ft i 
until eight year* atteTTVards— in ifl^rf 
when he bought Ziiharcs and paid |126 
for each of them. The evidence also 
states definitely that he was not secre- 
try for the company. (Applause.) 

"With regard to this end of the Water 
Works Company buelness, that was only 
obtained through a private bUl passed 
m 1892. In that year they got the 
charter amended so as to give them the 
right to Jay pipes from Goldstreani. And 
In^hat connection I And In the Journals 
of the h<puse that in iho 10th February, 
1892, Mr. Bberts, not Mr. Pooley, asked 
leave to Introduce a private bill to am- 
feiiu Uke Esquimau Water Works bill of 
1^85. (Applause.) I have it all marked 
here In the Journals of the house so that 
anyone can see. You may also be sur- 
prised to hear that that amendment to 
the act was made on the petition of the 
residents. That petition was signed by 
*72 residents. I hojie that Mr. Helracken 
will be satisfied with that. He should 
reallao now that when I made that state- 
ment I spoke the truth. If he cares to 
challenge my statements. I have every- 
thing here marked out for him, and he 
can see for hlm.«!rir. T nm satisfied, and I 
thmk you . fled also." (Ap- 


ooley reiterated his views in re- 
Kird 10 the government railway policy, 
and the various othor Jssues before the 
doctorate at this time. 

Mr. W. Blakemore, In a short adOre.-is, 
twitted the opposition upon the feeble

well after the "OU-Ked route." The 
Selandia is the first ocean-going oil-en-

seen. At the outset. It should be stated 
that tho Selandia must bo regarded as 
a dn' • rival to tho steamship. She 

Is (]• as an awning-deck ship, and 

her principal dimensions are: 370 feet 
In length, 68 feet In beam, 30 feet In 
depth, and of about 7,400 tons dead 
weight. Apart from the great beam the 
hull shows no material divergence from 
tho ordinary design. The propelling 
machinery consists of two dlght-cyllnder 
Diesel motors, each of 1,260 1. h. p., and 
driving twin screws. There ere also two 
auxiliary Diesel motorB of 250 l.h.p. 
each. The deck ciiglnes are throughout 
electric. All cargo winches are electri-

To tlio Electors of Vloloru: 

In acoeplliiif the nonilnatl'jn to rep- 
resent tho Liberal party In the City 
of Victoria at this provincial election, 
wo wUh to lay before the electors tho 
following statement of our political 
principles : 

We are In entire accord with the plat- 
form of the Llt^erals of BrlU»h Colum- 
bia, adopted 'by the Vancouver con- 
vention March 1, 1912, and particular- 

l."We tjolleve in t»rln|flnff all depart- 
ments of municipal government under 
direct control of the mayor and council; 
and that the abolition of the police 
commission and board of licensing com- 
missioners, or their being constituted 
elective bodies. Is an Imperative pubUo 

3. We believe In extending tha right 
of franchise to womon; and ore Impress- 
ed with the iB»{>«gjal necessity of so am- 
ending tha Municipal Act as to allow 
women tiiU right of rrauohlas at all 
municipal elections. >. 

I. W« believe In the a]»«Qlut« prpblt)!- 

» atnMclit iiuMort^ vote «i tlM 

t^ Wf believa ttot tli* ippolntment 
ot roas DMses and au government oftl- 
clals entrusted with the expenditure ot 
public money should be made regard* 
laka of politics. 

B. We believe in the necessity ot 
adoptlnip a policy of giving greater pub- 
licity to the detalla of expenditures of 
public funds. 

f. We believe In a revision of the 
land laws so as to safeguard the pub- 
lic interests and to promote settle- 

7. We believe in making collection of 
workmen's compensation for accidents 
and Injuries coUecUble without litiga- 
tion; and in the shortest possible time; 
tmd '■ 

S. In conclusion we i>eliev« that the 
adoption of a form of government bas- 
ed on the principles of the IitberaJ 
party '•'Will tend to the welfare of the

Thrilling Story of th« ■.•■cue by rish- 

eriuen of Orew of Staaxaer 


Mall advices from the United King- 
dom report that the Lowestoft trawler 
Pentlre has landed at Padstow fourteen 
of the crow of tho steamship Oaraanll. 
which was abandoned twenty miles north 
of that port. Extraordinary bravery 
wa« shown by the crewii of two Lowest- 
oft trawlers, the B. M. W. and Pentlre, 
which between them saved twenty-four 
lives. The Osr)mnll, of Glasirow, with 
2,400 tons of coal, for Naples, was 
caught in a hurricane oft Trovose Head 
on March 4, and was driven fifty miles 
by the storm. Her flres were put out by 
the seas, which continuously broke over 
her, and she became helpless. 

Rockets were Hred all night for assis- 
tance, and at daybreak tho following 
day she was sighted by the two trawl- 
ers. The steamer's lifeboat was launch- 
ed, but became useless through a rope 
fouling tho propeller. The trawlers 
launched boats, manned by the mate and 
third, hand of each, and with great gal- 
iantfy tfasjr made flv4' t^ps^ and too^

Several clever bouts, besides that in 
which Joe Bayley Is billed to ngure, 
are assured for the wrestling and box- 
ing tournament which will take place 
bore on the 29th Inst. One that is at- 
tention is that in which Albert Daviea, 
J. B. A. A., and Price, of Seattle, are 
matched. Uavles has a coterie of local 
supporters who believe that he is des- 
tined to make a name for himself. Thus 
far tie hasn't been extendjed. Price, how- 
ever, is known to be a fast boy and an 
experienced ring general They should 
so three very even rwinds. Then tbern 
Is the contest betwetn J. Willis, of fii'j 





J. c A. A., ana C. qurflun. the jo l o r jd 
lad. They are flrst-class glove artbit^ 
and are sure to furnish a splendid ex- 
hibition. It is just a littie bit doubt- 
ful whether Joe Bayiey's injured hand, 
which is reported to iwve betn hurt in 
the fourth roiind of his engagement 
with "Kid" Scott at Prince Rupert, will 
be Bufltciently healed to permit of t is 
boxing. The- promoters, howsver, be- 
lieye that he will appear and a.-e ar- 
ranging to give him the choice of Tcm- 
oiy Knockton, of Vancouver, who Is w^il 
known here, and Bruce Ashman, of Cle-

ROSE VALE is one of the finest pieces of property in ail Saaiiich, and it 
is entirely cleared, and has been under cultivation. The soil is rich and fertile. 
These facts alone are going to make Rosevale one of the first places to develop. 

No pioneering work is to be done, such as laborious clearing of hpiui e^* It is

yViKy OM^Tudhope ^our" Sells for $1,750 


MPORTING at a high rate of duty has 
placed a false value on automobiles 
sold in Canada. 

An imported car which sells for 
$1,100 in the United States is class- 
ed as a $1,500 or $1,600 car in Can- 
ada, because that is the price it has 
always commanded. It is an $1,100 car just the same. 

An imported car which is really worth $1^50 
»*"«iust be sold in Canada for $2,300 or more. The 
■"Bdtural result is tnac ii is c«asi>ca as a^A,ovR» wo*. 

The Tudhope "Four" could not be sold for $1,750 
if it were not wholly manufactured in Canada. 

Tudhope Cars are made in Canada in a thoroughly 
modern factory. The parts of the motor, the gears, 
the axles, in fact every essential part of the car is 

made from the raw material in the Tudhope Factory 

This plami»TiOT rafpassed by any American Fac- 
tory, either for its efi&ciency of equipixiient or its 

The cost 01 manufdctuVing cars in the Tudhope 
plant is as low as is possible in any American plant. 
SELLING PRICE. Tudhope Cars are sold at 
their true value. 

To the Canadian buyer this means that the value* 
of the Tudhope is far beyond what the price would 
lead one to expect. The Tudhope "Fours" at $1,750 
have the appointments of imported cars selling in 
Canada for $2,300 or $2,400 They have the same 
high-grade features, the same superior equipment.

This is a fair demonstration of the savings that the merchan- 
dising ecownnies of a rfepartnient store can offer you. The huge 
lots in wbi^h we purchase our garments, sometimes contracting 
for the entire output of a factory, enables us to secure much lower 
prices than the average retailer, then we save considwahfafjjn 
freight, rent, delivery service and many other items tbrcm|^ne 
co-operation of our other departments. These are the reasons why 
\>'e can offer you such excellent values. We aim at turning over 
the stock at a minimum profit and retain our customers. Try a 
suit, or at least visit the store and see the goods before you pur- 
chase elsewhere. It's necessary in your own interest.

It is an interesting fact that certain wells 
are found in different parts of the world, where 
if the tops have o\\\\- small oifiiinr;^ liio ^\r 
sometimes blov, 

drawn in. These wells in most cases act as 
enormous barometers, and the cause of this 
peculiar action is practically the same as was 
recently described in these columns where the 
writer changed an illicit whiskey still, into a 
*cry sensitive barometer. 

The following taken from a recent number 
of the Scientific American describe^ in detail 
this interesting subject: 

The term "blowing well" 'is applied to a 
well which, wndcr certain circumstances, ^iyes 
outi^ fttrr«i»t of air from any small apertttii 
-.4l)p|ii!ntft^,.-Thls •■current,.^- is^^; often"'^^ 

§mti[over the apei*iire; or dn^jjjiy^ 
caijng of the w«E Ite «Miw«<» 
ttCjE;oni{)anied by a whiistlmfc rOftring of moan- 
ing noise, which may bt aiidible it a distance 
of several rods^ 

As a rule "blowing" wells are also "stick- 
ing" wells, i.e., at times the direction of the air 
current is reversed, the air being drawn into 
the well. Cases are recorded, however, of wells 
that always "blow" and' of others that always 
"suck," but these are rare. Tlie term "breath- 
ing well" has sometimes been applied to the 
common type of well that both "blows" and 

Many years ago the foreign scientific jour- 
nula deserihej a uuiubcr of wells at MeyHit, a 
little <;ommune in the canton of Geneva, Swit- 
zerland, which were utilized as barometers by 
the inhabitants. These wells, which were yery 
: deep and~ were ho' Ibhger^^^'u 
water, had been tightly blocked up with ma- 
Bomy except for an oriltice of some three c^en* 
titneters in diameter, through which air car- 
rents Issued and entered in the nuitifer above 
deseribed. Ofte df tliese h«d been fitted with a 
whistle, whereby the sound Of its btoWtng was 
rendered Audible at a great distance. The in- 
draft of the «ir Was regarded ^ a prognostic 
of fair weathei': white stirong Mowing was be- 
lieved to be a sure taken of a coming storm. 

Jn r^eiit yeaVs the occurrence of blowing 
wells has been reported at many pla<^ in En 
rope and America. Those in the Unitird **" ' 
h«Vft "been Stidtcd by the GeaI^|c»I^g_ 
and their phetioi^ena are now 0rly.,w«aV-. 
derstood. The Sttfvey has recently jfktibfislild' 
statistics of the distribution of such wells. 
^ The names "weather well" and "barometer 
•vy,eH" ofte% l^attyi t^lied to wells that blow 
and sudc f^tettn* |«pular belief thatthe be- 
havior of tlte^ Wells is governed in some way 
by the weather; and this belief is in the itiaift 
correct, i.e., the phenomena, in a majorl^ SI 
cases, depend upon fluctuations in the baro- 
metric pressure, aifd these in turn are broadly 
related to ehahices fn the weather. One nf tbf: 
first persons to test this hvpothesis e^f^N^^ 
mentadiy was P*of. J. T. Wiflard. of the Kan- 
sas State Agriciiltural CoUege. Havit^gi^rd 
of a well of tlus character «t WfttoftM^ilCian- 
sas, he visited the spot, sealed the top of the 
well airtight by means of mortar and j4i^terol * 
pari« and' Inserted; -if-i^niU- brass tnbe €^»fteel^#* 
ing the well with a gauge. The latter consist- 
ed of a U-^h^py «:Uw*^be,|5H^%^f c^ iitlMch 
for &cvtm mches •dp was fitted with water. 
The fluctuations iii the level of the water, read 
^jy ^^^!feM *" attached scale, indicated the 
(lirewMWplna force of the air moveni|,e|ifcjit the 
top of the well. By coi^iiHsbn'Wiflti-eftdi^gs 
of a mercurial baroni(BttM{ - it was shown con- 
clusively that the a^'?»^. .i?rell exerted % 
pressure outward whii<i«i=SiiJe«eter fell, and 
yielded to the pressure of the outer air when 
the barometer rose. The explanation of the or- 
dinary phenomena of sucking and blowing 
wells is, therefore, that a body of air. inclosed 
ni the earth and communicating with the ex- 
terior by only one or a few small orifices, set.s 
up strong outdrafts and indrafts in adjusting 
its tension to that of the air outside. It must 
not be supposed, however, that the inclosed 
body of air m question is merely that contained 
within the well itself. The volume of the lat- 
ter would probably be far too small to produce 
the violent effects observed. As Prof. VVillard 
pointed out many years ago, each of these 
wells doubtless taps a subterranean reservoir 
of air, probably filling the interstices of sand or 
gravel beds. When the pressure of the exter- 
nal air is diminished some of this imprisoned 
air escapes, and the greater the fall of the ba- 
rometer the greater the force with which the 
air is expelled. The fact that the majority of 
deep wells, closed at the top except for one or 
more small openings, do not exhibit the phe- 
nomena of blowing and sucking is, therefore, 
explained by the fact that they are not able 
to draw upon any considerable body of im- 
prisoned air besides that contained in the well. 
A serious result of the .sucking process is 
often observed in winter. During the occur- 
rence of high barometric pressure and its usual 
accompaniment, low temperature, a quantity of 
cold air is drawn into the well, and the water 
freezes, even at a depth of loo feet or more be- 
low the surface of the ground. 

The foregoing simple explanation of blow- 
ing and sucking wells does not apply to all 
cases. Fluctuations of water-level may doubt- 
less give rise to similar phenomena. Suppose, 
for example, that a heavy fall of rain causes a 
general rise of the water-table in a water-bear- 
ing stratum of large area lying beneath an im- 
pervious stratum, the latter being perforated at 
only a few puitfts by wells. The air imprison- 
ed above an extensive sheet of water will thus 
h^ fnrred through a few small openings, eacli 
uf which will be the source of a violent air 

Fluctuations in the temperature of the out- 
side air may also play a part in tHiese phc- 

nr^mona. It is well kiwuvn iiirnn- (-;i\»'rim 

inicating witli 
opennigs. blow in summer auil suck in winter; 
the air within maintaining a nearly uniform 
temperature while that without varied with the 
season, .\ccording to Prof. Barbour, many ol.)- 
servers notice a dliurnal reversal of the air cur- 
rent in wells, corresponding to the diurnal 
period of the tenjperature.

An extraordinary .scene was witnessed re- 
cently at I'oodosia, in the Crimea. \ party of 
Mohammedan pilgrims, returning from Mecca, 
oach carried ;i lar^,'e box containing holy w^ater. 
'JMie railway authorities ordered them to j)ut 
these boxes in the luggjige-van. They quietly 
l)Ut firmly refused, saying they would rather 
(lie than be separated from their beloved boxes. 

About a hundred of them then lay down on 

' rails in front of the train. The anlhnr- 

nicr> were powerless. They tried moving them. 

The men did not resist, but as soon as one was 

lifted, another would take his ])lace. 

Hventually the station master was forced 
to give way, and the pilgrims were given per- 
mission to take their holy water into the car- 
riages with them. Then the train started, two 
hours late. — L,ondon Chronicle.

The problem of what would happen during 
a prolonged strike has been occupying many 
minds during the past few days in view of the 
fact that the last great strike of miners lasted 
from June to October, 1894, says the Sjihere, 
from which the accompanying photographs 
arc reproduceil. In ihi.s case the strike only 
concerned ScotlamI, but even that partial dis- 
location ran coal jjricos up to over 40s. per 
ton. A total cessation of coal lasting for over 
a (|uartcr of a year conjures uj) such a gloomy 
picture that thoughts 0/ starvation niKl other 
lirivations flood into the mitid. hi nry 

to remember that however true it is thai mod- 
ern civilization is at present built upon coal 
there arc mitigating circnmslances in nearly 
pvcry conceivable arrangemc ;^ 1 human af- 

To IheLondene' w'-.::- w-li/--:-, •.h-.w he ::; !>ut 
one of 8,000.000 comes the thought. '"Knw am 
I to be fed if railways cease running for lack 

of coal?" The answer to this is that he is in a 
more fortunate situation than he imagines. He 
lives in a port although he rarely sees a ship. 
This fact means that supplies of food can 
come up with every tide to the metropolis, 
and horse and j)etrol traffic will distribute' 
the food to the usual centres. The large pro- 
vincial town is not in such a favor,Tble situa- 
tion. It vvtjuld depend possibly on road cart- 
age and petrol-driven lorries for its food sup- 
plies after many weeks had exhausted the 
available coal. With the very thought of a 
coal strike every horse automatically gains in 
value. The despised cab horse becomes a 
means of hauling food and oilier necessities to 
one's door and larder. 

The anncxad map gives a general view of 
the distribution of the areas concerned' in the 
[ircsent strike. Starting at the north We have 
Fifeshire, the Lothians, Lanarkshire, and Ayr- 
.sltjre coal fields, which were concerned in the 

great strike of 1894 already referred to. Then 
crossing the border we reach the Nortli- 
' umberland and Durham coal ficMs. To the 
westward, separated by the Pennine range, is 
the smaller Cumberland field and the North 
Lancashire field. 

Then there is a long ga[) of nuiorland be- 
fore we reach the huge South Yorkshire. Der* 
byshire, and Lancasliirc areas. The white 
space which divides them is the lower portion 
of the Pennine range. Then f(jllovv smaller 
carboniferous areas in Flintshire, Denbighshire 
and the North Staffordshire field. Scattered 
like a sort of jet-black PIcaidcs arc Shrews-

This is a fish whieh is liard to hmi

good sport from the beginning to the end of a 
long season, wrhether in the salt water of the 
bays and.e«tuftries or after it has run itp the 
rivers on the way to the spawning beds. 

One of the most enticing forms of fishing 
is to pick out the ''whoppers'* rising in the cur- 
rent in some river mouth, where as a rule they 
will freely take a fly. 

In the hot we«th^ of the summer month.s. 
when the rivers «f«io# and clear as glass, the 
angler would have little chance of sport in the 
daytime were itJIItApv the sea^trout which 
take well all thw&pi this season by the 
.salt-water, and will afford excellent sport with 
a .small bright .spoon trolled behind a boat near 
the surface even when they will not take a 
fly. As a rule, however, the only time when 
it is u.seless to try the fly even in the tid?I 
water is when there Is such an abundance of 
their favorite and natural food, the small fry 
of the salmon and other varieties of fi.*ih. in- 
cluding their own little brethren, that any- 
thing smaller and less succulent will not temn) 
the fat and full-fed cannibals. 

The angler who can land on light tackle 
a big percentage of the sea-trout that he hooks 
has nothing to be ashamed of, for he will in 
every case be trying conclusions with a fish 
that knows no surrender and has to be played 
to a finish, after a succession of runs' and leaps 
tugs, hcadshakings and antics which will kee;« 
the fisherman's heart in his mouth, and will 
make him respect every specimen of the tribe 
with which he comes to a close acquaintance. 
for he will never strike a sulking fish and he 
will have a tussle in every case with an enemy 
which he cannot bring to basket until the last 
ounce of his fighting strength has been ex- 

-An experienced fisl'.ernian will of course 
understand that the excelence of the sport in 
different waters and lakes depends on condi- 
tions of weather and water, and that the best 
time to fish one water is not necessarily the 
best time to fish another. Many of our rivers 
arc glacial fed, and to fish them when the 
summer sun is discoloring their water with 
glacial mud is to court disappointment, al- 
though a visit to the same water in the au- 
tumn or sf^ring undoubtedly would mean the 
making of heavy baskets. 

Another thing which must not be forgotten 
is that the in the coast streams arc mi» 
gratory, many of our best coast streams de- 
pending entirely on runs of fish from the sea, 
and lucky is the man vho just hits off a run 
of sea-trout, for they averaee biir .|uid they 
fight like heroes.

panting and groaning with her, it is to that 
harbor where all wrecks axe refitted, and 
where, alas, we towering in our pride, may 
never come. 

So you will not think that I mean to speak 
liglitly of old friendships, becatise we cai?not 
help instituting comparisons between our pres- 
eirt and our former selves by the aid of those 
who were what we were, but are not what we 
ire. Nothing strikes one more in the race of life, 
than to see how many give out in the first half 
of the course. ' "Commencement Day" always 
reminds me of the start for the "Derby," when 
the beautiful high-bred three-year-olds of the 
season are brought up for trial. That da^ is 
the start and life is the race. Here we are at . 
Cambfidge, and a class is just "graduating." 
Poor Harry, he was to have been there too. 
but he has' paid forfeit, step out here into' the 
grass back of the church, ah, thereit is: 

"Hung lapidem posuerunt 
Soch moerentes." 

But this is the start and here they are, coats 
bright as silk, and manes as smooth as eau 
lustrale can make them. Some of the best of 
the colts are pranced around, a few minutes 
ach to show their paces. What is that' old 
gentleman crying about? and the old lady by 
him, and the three girls, what are they all cov- 
ering their eyes for? Oh, that is their colt 
that has just been trotted upon the stage. 
Do riiev really think fhfme little thin legs can 
do any'hing in such a slashing sweepstakes as 
coming off in these forty years? Oh, this 
lerrible gift of second ^'ght that comes to 
some of us when we begin to look through 
the silvered rings of the arcus senilis. 

All that are on the courSe art eomlng in at 
a walk; no more runnnig. Who is ahead? 
Ahead? What, and the winning post a slab of 
^hite„ or _^ey stone standing out from^Jhat 
turf whe»«'tB«re. Ig "no more jockeying or 
straining lor victory. Well, the world marks 
their places in its betting book; but be sure 
that these matter very little, if Ihey have run 
as well as they knew how.

pression and telling effects. 

The programme itself provided an embar- 
rassn^ent of riches. As excellent as each. item 
proved- itself, it js .<iuestionable if any audi- 
ence has. the mental capacity to absorb so 
much that is good in one evening. An abbre- 
viation even of such opulenc* might hav6 
been desired. 

No more strikingly effective rentree for the 
Toronto singers couid have been conceived 
than was afforded, by. the JUotti "Crucifixus." 
The opening crescendo from a mysterious 
pianissimo carried througli with the most skil- 
ful gradation of tone to a full-blooded fortis- 
simo at once produced an electric thrill in the 
listeners. By the perfection of balance, the 
tonal finesse and the atmospheric impressive- 
ness achieved in this noble work the chorus set 
itself a standard which could not conceivably 
have been a higher one. Any. apprehensions 
that may have arisen that such a standard 
could not be consistently maintained were to 
be dissipated by the well poised dramatic in-, 
tensity, the tonal variety and dignity that fair- 
ly transfigured Gounod's somewhat theatrical 
setting of the 137th Psalm, as also by the man- 
ner in which the following three numbers 
with orchestra were given. Undoubtedly the 
most overwhelming climax of choral beauty 
was attained in the "Sanctus" from Bach's 13 
Minor Mass. Here indeed Dr. Vogt played on 
his choir as on a great organ, and the effect of 
the wonderfully lucid contrapuntal singing, 
building up ever greater masses of tone, was 
truly sublime.

Mii^hMmif^imMmAry on Februarys. 

This fact, together with other interesting ^ta 

" concerning the opera, was pointed out by Max 

Halpersoui music critic of the New York 

Staats Zeitung. Verdi wrote "Aida" under the 

solicitation of the Khedive of Egypt, for the ; 

celebration of the opening of he Suez Cana:! 

anfl for it he received $40,000. The opera was 

first produced in Cairo on December 24, 1871, 

bu the official premiere, under the personal 

direction of the composer himself, was not 

given until January 8, 1872, at La Scala, Milan. 

•It was nearly two years later wdien the Strak- 

osch Opera ' Company gave a production of 

' \!i; (t ie Academy of Music in New 

York, but it was not presented in Berlin until 

1874; Vienna, Warsaw and St. Petersburg not 

until 1875, and London- and Paris first heard 

the opera in 1878. 

"Aida" was pronounced a failure by the 
Staats-Zeitung critic, who preceded Mr. Hal- 
pcr<(ni. and only a short life was predicted for 
the work. Octave Torriani sang the title role 
in the first American production, while others 
in the cast were Annie Louise Gary. Italo 
Campanini. Victor Maurel. Nannetti and Sco- 
laro, Emanuel Muzio was the conductor. 

The title role of Richard Strauss' new opera. 
"Ariadne at Naxos.' 'which is to be produced 
in Stuttgart on October 7, will be created by 
Emmy De.stinn. Miss Destinn cabled list; 
week her willingness to. appear in the opera. 
She will also sing "Minnie" in a Paris produc- 
tion of "The Girl of the Golden West," with 
Caruso, following the close of iIi' Mletropoli- 
tan season.

An opera marked both i^-, the l.rilliany of 
the work and for the horror of its text was pro- 
duced in l'*aris at the Opera Comique. It is 
called "La Lepreusc," and is from the pens oJt 
Henry Bataille and Sylvio Lizzari. Lazzari'? 
music fitted in perfectly to depict the grew- 
someness of the story, and in character is remi- 
nicscnt of Wagner. Unplefte^nnt as ♦h*' theme 
is, dealing with leprosy, it is forcefully dra- 
matic, and when the .qirl decides to win h^r

Instead there is a card which bids those 
who seek admission to press a button that 
rings a bell at the house and to give their 
names through the speaking tube. If these are 
recognized and the visitors are desired the 
gate is unlocked by another electric wire and 
the path leads the way to the house. 
Strauss is an indefatigable mountain clim- 
ber. In his knee breeches and stout shoes he 
will tramp over the sides and summits of 
these mountains by the day, jotting down in 
a note book the themes kindled in his imagin- 
ation by the beauty, and grandeur outspread 
before him. Thus he has found a "programme" 
for-his new piece at his very doors.

"Praise the Lord all ye nations. Praise Him 
all ye peoples. For His merciful kindness is 
great toward us. and the truth of the Lord 
endureth forever. Praise ye the Lord 

Some extracts from the beautiful Vedantic 
philosophy as translated by the Swami Vive- 

"At first the goal is far off. outside Nature, 
and far beyond it, attracting us all toward it. 
This has to be brought near, yet without be- 
ing degraded or degenerated, until it has come 
close and closer, the God of Heaven becomes 
the God in Nature, till the God in Nature be- 
comes the God who is Nature, ami the God 
who is Nature becomes the God within this 
temple of the body, and ihe God dwelling in 
the temple of the body becomes the temple 
itself, becomes the soul of man. Thus it 
reaches the last words it can teach. He whom 
the sages have sought in all these places, is in 
our own hearts. Thou art He. O Man. Thou 
art He." 

The surface of the sea rise.s and .sinks alter- 
natelv, but to the observant soul, the child of 
light, each sinking reveals more and more of 
the depth, and of the beds of pearl and coral 
At the bottom. Coming and going is all pure 

Uitions.' ,. , UTT *- 

The Blessed One said to Yashas Her^ris^j 
no distress; h|»l#D tribulations. Come to me 
and I Will tei |^. the truth, and truth will 
^dispel your a(lii|eli».'' 

AQdwhen'^lMllM^ noWe youth, heard 
-.#t1t' there Wi«|fc«il^*h*'lf- distress,, nor tribula-_^ 
tJdo*, nor sofWiril, his heart was comforted.! 
He went into the place where the Blessed 
One was, and sat down near him. 

Then the Blessed One preached about char- 
ity and morality. He explained the vanity of 
desires, their sinfulness and their evil, anTK 
pointed out the path of deliverance. 

. Instead of disgust at the world, Yashas feU 
the cooling stream of holy wisdom, and hav- 
ing obtained the pure and spotless eye of truth, 
he looked at his person, richly adorned with 
pearls and precious stones, and his heart was 
filled with shame. 

And Tathagata, knowing his inward 
thoughts said. 

Though a person be ornamented with 
jewels, the heart may have conquered the 
senses. The outward form does not constitute 
religion or affect the mind. Thus the body of 
a shrmana may wear an ascetic garb while his 
mind is immersed in worldliness. 

A' man that dwells in lonely woods and 
yet covets worldly vanities, is a wordling. 
while a man in worldly garments may let his 
heart soar high to heavenly thoughts. 

There is no'distinction between the laymaai 
and the hermit, if but both have banished the 
thought of self. 

The New Testament, Romans 15 

We then that are strong ought to bear the 
infirmities of the weak, and not to please our- 

Let every one of us please his neighbour 
for his good to edification. , 

For even Christ pleased not Himself; but 
as it i^ writtou the reproaches of them 
fell on mc. 

For whatsoever things were written afore- 
time were written for our learning, that we 
through patience and comfort ,of the Scrip- 
tures might have hope. 

Now the Crod of patience and consolation 
grant you to be likeminded one toward an- 
other according to Christ Jesus. 

That ve mav with one mind and one mouth

remaiuc(i under Roman dominion iwt 
five hundrerl years. At the time of the Roman 
conque- population of the country was 

probably uikkt five millions. No reliable sta- 
tistics are available, but such estimates as were 
made by contemporary historians do not war- 
rant the assumption that the total exceeded 
this number. Many of the original tribes had 
wholly disappeared. Some, like the Basques 
and ?Ielvetii. had fled to the mountains. Others 
had been wholly exterminated. Others had 
been so reduced in number as to have been unr

before he returned to Rome to see that the pro- 
vincial governments were well established. He 
divided Gaul into two provinces, that on the 
south being called Gallia Togata, to signify 
that its people might wear the Roman toga and 
«».njoy the full privilege of citizenship; that on 
the north being Gallia Comata, that is Gaul of 


Christianity made their homes. Here also the

Aher the death of Conmntine the Greati 
and during what has been called the Imperial 
Anarchy, which lasted until the overthrow of 
the Empire, Gaul was subject to many inva- 
sions from beyond the Rhine, but they were 
all successfully resisted, although not always 
without tremendous sacrifice, until the latter 
quarter of the Fifth Century, when the Franks 
under Meroveus made a permanent .settle- 
ment in the north. Then began a new chapter 
in the story of. this land, and Gaul became the 
country of the Franks. 

the lonf-halred;' attd Its people were treated as 
a subject race, but with much kindness. Caesar 
left Gaul fairly content under its new masters 
and in a state of peace except along the Rhine, 
where there were almost continual collisions 
between ihe Roman troops and those of Ger- 

In the reign of Augustus and in that of his 
successor Tiberius this satisfactory state of 
things continued. Caligula acted the part of 
the mad tyrant in Gaul just as he did else- 
where. His successor Claudius, who was born 
at Lyons, extended the rights of citizeship to 
thie long-haired Gauls, and in his reign the 
coutttry prospered. He was responsible for 
an act the effect of which tvill- doubtless con- 
tinue as long as time endures. He resolved 
that alt the jRoman world should speals the 
kngttag<b of Rome. It is told of Augustus that 
when a messenger came from one of the east- 
em provinces of the Empire with a petition, he 
refused to hear him because he could not speak 
in Latin, but he made no decree enjoining that 
all citizens should use that language. Claudius 
was regarded by his family as a dull man. Hts 
mother called him "a shadow of a man, an un- 
fintshed sketch of riatiire*s drawing,**' but lie 
was statesman enough to recognize that there 
cottld be no assimilation between the various 
peoples of the Empire unless they were all 
taught to speak the same language, and to 
read their laws out of the same writings. iMie 
doctrine of separate laws, language and re- 
ligion was not tolerated by Roman imperial- 
ists. The effect of the decree of Claudius was 
to replace the ancient speech of Gaul by the 
lan^^uage of ^ome, and thus was laid the foun- 
^tfon of modem French. So complete tvas the 
chatlge that the Franks and other Qermanic 
tjtbes^ which later> entered the country, adopted 
the language they found there. In England 
these invaders imposed their speech upon the 
people. In .Gaul nearly five hundred years of 
Latin culture had so established the tongue of 
Italy that it could not be replaced. Qn the 
contrary, it became the language of culture aiid 
of the cQilcta aUwer western Europe. Later 
it becaii^tlhki £ij»^age of diplomacy^ and it is 
only now being slowly replaced by the spieech 
which the Germanic peoples brought witto 
them into England. 

The peace of Gaul did notjremain untjroken. 
There were numerous ^iil^iSBngs, but. none of 
them met with even a moderate measure of

Of artieles tm the ISloinan'Etrtjiwrors, on more 
than. one occasion placed her favorite general 
on the throne of the Caesars. The religion of 
Gaul before the conquest was Druidical, whicii 
has been described as more of a political or- 
ganization thain as of feHgious character; It 
was obnoxioiai|ii|^e^^ R^ who regarded it 

as a source «lllil%er to their power. Hence 
the Druid priests were driven from the coun- 
try, although no attempt was made to itnpose 
Paganism itpon the people. The Roman pol- 
icy of permitting all religions to exist side by 
side was adhered to in Gaul, except so far as 
the banishment of the Druidical priesthood 
was concerned. There was One exception to 
this rule of tolerance, and it was Christianity. 
At first the emperors regarded it with indif- 
ference. Its adherents were looked upon only 
as a sect of uninflucntial Jews. Suetonius 
sa3s, "The Emperor Claudius drove from 
Rome the Jews, who, at the instigation of 
Christus, were in continual commotion." This 
took place about twenty-five years after the 
Crucifixion. Suetonius wrote about fifty 
years later, and his words show how the 
Christians were looked upon by the educated 
Romans at the close of the first century of 
our Era. The persecutions directed against 
them were at first political, that is. the Chris- 
••;.po 'vfrc made scapegoats on various dcc.i- 
■^ions. when it was necessary to lay the blame 
of a calan,\ity upon some one. Thus Nero per- 
secuted them for the burning of Rome. The 
jirw religion was introduced into Gaul from 
Greece and came by way of Marseilles, where 
there \v€re rminantc of fhc. n](\ Creek colonies.

Alexander is said Lu have burnt. tine, of the 
oirly two copies of the Avesta. The Greeks 
are.sitpposed to have stolen the other one, and 
borrowed from it all their scientific knowl- 
edge. It is a complicated system of religion, 
and presupposes a long period of development. 
The doctrines are subtle ; the ceremonial order

that Is not open to objection. liii&ptA there are 
tliose who deny that there ever was a Glacial 
Period and who seek to explain the phenomena 
attributed to it in some other way. Many 
feaders may be familiar . with Ignatus Don- 
nelly'* Ragnafok, in which he seeks to show 
by rcierence to certain aspect? of the Drift 
and to the older myths and legends of man- 
kind, that most of the so-called glacial pheno- 
mena can be best explained by supposing the 
earth, to have been mi collision with a comet. 
Hia book is rery . rea dable fur the facta . -. ct 

forth in it. His arguments at times strained to 
the breakng point. Without taking this writer 
seriously, he may be said to represent the ex- 
treme school of tbo»«« who believe the Glacial 
Period was due to astronomical causes, that is, 
to causes external to the earth. We shall deal 
first with the astronomical theories. 

Fossil remains prove that at a time ante- 
cedent to the distribution of the Drift, which, 
as was' pointed out in a previous article, is the 
geological term for sand, gravel and clay, si 
much warmer temperature prevailed in high 
latitudes than now is found there. It is an es- 
tablished fact that in what is known as a Ter- 
tiary Period in geology the temperature of the 
North Temperate and Arctic Zones was much 
warmer than it now is. A* these articles are 
being written for, the information of *, 
tvho have paid tittfe attention to such'matters, 
it may be added that the proof of this arises 
from the fact that in the rocks of thfe Arctic 
Zone, in a regtoi^ no^ covered *tth"lce per^n 

face of the Sun. These things show the Sun 
to be a globe in constant and tremendous ac- 
ti\ity, varying fFOm time to time. It is suggest- 
ed that during the Tertiary Age the activity 
was great, and hence, greater heat was given 
off, and that ttjis activity was followed by a 
jieriod of lost activity and consequently of less 
licat, and then the earth become ice-coated. 

A frturth explanation is that the earth's axis 
r'^'fted during the Glacial Period. This theory 
1 found a great many supporters,' but it 
•^ ns open to insuperable objections. It is not 
reconcilable with the distribution of the Drift'. 
It also seems to be too great a cause for such a 
, result UK it is supposed to have produced. It is

Median Mytholo^ 
V'ery little is known of the history of the 
Median empire. Her early days are hidden hjc- 
hind' the mysteriotis curtain of. farKlistant 
time, and we can catch here Atid there 6iily 
tantalizing and. elusive glimpses, which give 
us but a vague idea of the b«auty, the power 
and the mi^t of that nation, which dared to 
rise up against the conquerors of western Asia, 
defying at first the omnipotence of the great 
Arsur-bajni'pal, to whom Asia and Africa, even 
haughty Egypt herself, had bowed the knee, 
and finally to overthrow one kingdom after 
another. , 

History tells us that the country was rich, 
and the people luxury-loving, though their 
manner of living was more primitive than that 
which existed in Egypt or Chaldea. Their 
political and military organizations were 
strong, and, indeed, the whole social system 
must have been admirable in many ways, for 
it produced men who w^re to become the con- 
querors of the Western wodd. :' . .., l 
Particularly \fras the xeligion they professed 
an interesting one for us to study tochiy, f<ir it 
was that religion common to all the Irahlans, 
the Persians as well as the Medes, ;itnd ^e 
name of whose founder is familiar to most of 
us. \Ve call him Zoroaster, but in those au)* 
cient times he was known as Zarathustra, and 
he^ is said to have been the first law-giver and 
prophet of the Iranian people. 

According to the very oldest accoiiints, Za- 
rathustra was born in the region Between tht 
Araxes and the Kur, to the west of the Cas- 
pian Sea. We take the followtng siiotiy of fci^ 
birth and manhood from Maspero's Egypt, 
Vol. VIII.: ' 

"In the belief of an Iranian, every man, every 
living creature now existing or henceforth to 
exist, not excluding the gbds themselves, pos- 
sesses a Frohar, or guardian Spirit, who is as- 
signed to him at his" entrance into the world, 
and who Is tfienireforth devoted entirely. ' fa* 
watching over his material and moral wett- 
being. About the time appoint^e^ for the ap- 
pearance of the prophet, his Krohar was, by 
dfvljie gAce, impHalmii in the heart of a Hao- 
ma, and was AbiO#lNed along with the juice of 
the plant by'tift^iest Purushaspa during a 
sacrifice, a ray or heavenly glory descending at 
me same time into the l;NOsom o^j^^^en of 
^noble .rac.e,name4,PttglfeiuwhQS3Kdiaar. 
pa shortly afi^^ards espoused. Zoroaster 
was engendered from the mingling of the 
Frohar with the celestial ray. The evil spirit, 
whose supremacy he threatened endeavored 
to destroy him as soon as he saw the light, and 
despatched one of his aigents, named Boniti. 
froin the country of the far north to oppose 
him J but the infant prophet immediately pro- 
nounced theforrhula with which the psalm for 
the offering of the waters opens : 'The will 
of the Lord is the rule of Good.' . . . Boniti 
immediately fled aghast.' Again and again did 
the demons assail the child Zoroaster, but. 
aided by the good deity, he. kept them all at 
'bay. When he grew to young manhood he 
had become so strong and so wise, that the 
good spirits thought him fit to be conducted 
into the presence of the Snprcme Being. Of 
the Deity Zoroaster inquired, 'Which is the 
best of the creatures which are upon the earth?' 
And the answer was given, 'He whose heart is 
pure excels them all' .\fter having pas.sed 
through many terrible ordeals, physical and 
mental, Ahura-mazda. the Supreme Being, 
gave into the prophet's hands the Book of the 
Law, the Avesta, and he was sent from Heaven 
to his native land. Arriving at the court, the 
wise men gathered about Zoroaster and tried 
to bewilder him with their questions, but he 
replied to them all clearly and unhesitatingly, 
and betrayed no confusion of word or manner 
or countenance. Then, when baffled, they 
stood silent before him. having questioned him 
for four days and nights, he opened the 
precious volume entrusted to him by .Ahnra- 
inazda. and read from it aloud. ,rpon hearing 
the words <.'f wisdom the wise men were con 
founded and put to shame. Henceforth r. in- 
verts flocked to Zoroaster, and before he died,

A second -proposed explanation is based

meteoric swarm, which in .some years is very 
much, more numerous than in others. An as- 
tronoitiical theory has been advanced Iv me 
authorites, and been'accepted as not .i 
> improbable, that the heat of the S 
tained by the impact of meteors n; _ : i .. ;„ 
can easily prove that a thing may be be made 
hot by a succe.s.sion of blow,s. If you take a 
hammer and .strike a piece oif board a number 
of sharp strokes in the same place you will find 
the board warmer in the place struck than it is 
elsewhere. The impact of many meteor.s upon 
the Sun would undoubtedly its temper- 
ature, and so it is suggested that the Sun 
plunged into the Sun and increa.sed its heat 
made hotter during the Tertiary Age, and 
then passed into a stratum of space barren of 
meteors, and consequently grew colder, arfd 
hence arose the Glacial Period. A variation 
of this theory is that a great comet may have 
plunged into the Sun and increased tts heat 
during the Tertiary .^ge. ^ This theory has 
more probability to recommend it than the one 
just referred tn. 

A third theory is based upon tlic known fact 
that the condition of the Sun is one of con- 
stant change. Imagination cannot comceive .Of '^ 
the tremendous magnitude of the changes con- 
stantly going on in our great luminary. We' fre-

One sign of the advance .which 
has been made by American man- 
;ig:crs and hbrettists may be 
-'ound in Joe Weber's production 
oi "Ahna, Where Do You Live?" 
which will be at the Victoria The- 
atre Tuesday. March 26. 

Here is a farce originally done 
in Paris, then turned into a Ger- 
man version for .t;^e^3sr|^l audi- 
ences, and t|ien tJfottgiht' to the 

i^cnnaao^^^*^^^® ^^ Ncw-Yprk 
^iiSSi^^ sBMh it proved tba siMiaa- 
"^'^ISiiJftt'^o! two seasons ago. Bttt thtii 
was on accottiil of the wonder< 
f ultjr pleasing music of Jean Bri- 
quet. All Vent to hear it. Then 
it bipcame known that there was 
'inuch in the book to cause criti- 
cism. This was so much so that 
ti&e attention of Mayor Gaynor of 
K-ew York was called to it. And 
here's where the advance of the 
Americans came. in. Mr. Weber, 
r in the face of all this opposition, 
tbok the Amftriran rights nf the 

piece,, and had it rendered into a 
book with which even the most 
captious could not find fault 

il^he first thing ^bat Mr^. Weber 

(lid was to order all of the orig- 
inal numbers of Jean Briquet re- 
luiiied to the sqore. Tliere is 
n^tight but purity in music, and 
this, action iielped the final re- 
sult. The plav ran a whole sea* 
nan at his theatre, and that with- 
out the slightest objection on the 
l)art of anyone. The original and 
catchy s(^gs, the positive charm. 
of the music, all have been retain- 
, ed. And the bodk iii as dainty as 
the music , ■ . 

C",eorge V, tJobatt, tjic prollfKl 
American comedy writer, was da- 
gaged by Mr. Weber to make the 
English version. The aluccess he 
made of it was phenome^l. He 
went back to the original French 
story and p^id little attention to 
the German as an intermediate 
helpmate. It is Sot this reason 
that the alnggishness of the Ger> 
man "Alma is entirely omitted.- 
Hobart's natural Amai^ft wit« 
combined with the Frettdbiness of 
*he original proved the most en- 
tertaining bit of work presented 
to New York theatregoers • in 
^ some time. 

Mr The excellent company Which 

_ »m muke Mr, Weber*& presentar 
:^ tion here is beaded by Nanette 
''■ J'lxcck, with 'Charles A. Murray 
an<I Aubrey Yates prominent in 
the cast. Others are Charts Waf^ 
ton, Edwin, Carewe, Henry bhci;- 
wood, Pickering Brown, J. Her- 
bert Crowley, Vivijm Gill, Maty. 
Croft and Bae Hamilton. 

The fatrce begins in the morn- 
ing. It is the usual "night be- 
fore" which starts the trouble. 
Theobold Martin and his prospec- 
^^'^tive son-in-law, Gaston Duval, ar- 
rive at home and find domestic 
wrath awaiting them. Tjicir ad- 
ventures have included a meeting 
with Mile. Aima, once the fiancee 
of Gaston. Presently Alma ap- 
pears and complicates things for 
the returned jprodigals. An unex- 
pected happeniiig, however, re- 
conciles her presence to the wo- 
men of the household, 

An eccentric millionaire rela- 
tive of the Martins leaves his 
fortune to his adopted son, Pierre 
le Peach, on condition that he 
•^hall not fall in love with or pro- 
pose io any woman before he 
r.omes of age, which event is to 
happen on the morrow. In the 
i:vent of Pierre's surrender to 
soiiie siren, Theobald and Gaston 
are to divide the fortune be- 
tween them. They immediately 
suggest .that Mile. Alma shall win 
a proposal of marriage from the 
young heir presumptive. It is not 
an easy task for the youth makes 
!iis appearance singing melodious 
^varnings against womankind. 
'I^hese his benefactor had instilled 
ni him. 

.\[oreovcr, Mile. Alma is an 
idealist as well as a Parisian mil- 
liner. She determines to save the 
lad's fortune for him despite the 
conspiring pair. And then she 
falls in love with this farce com- 
edy Parsifal, who is all innocence. 
And finally she wins the fortune 
:md its possessor for herself. 

came Alice Neilson, Tettrazini 
and many other stars of grand 
and comic opera. In "Miss No- 
body From Starland," Miss Vail 
portrays the role of an adventur- 
ous chorus girl, and she is ac- 
companied by a clever cast of 
well known principals and one. oi,

"The Newly weds and Their 
Baby" isj coming to the Victoria 
Theatre shortly. It is a big com- 
pany of 60 1-2 people, the half, 
of course, being the baby. It is 
said to be a magnificently staged 
production, and there is a large 
chorus of unusually pretty girls. 
The date will be announced soon. 

Olive Vail, who appears in the 
title role of the successful Mort 
11. Singer musical comedy pro- 

Starland," is one of Chicago's fav- 
:,ji*r prima donnas, and is a P'o-

Europe has contributed no 
small amount of talent which bas_ 
made good over the Sullivan & 
Considine circuit, and the Apollo 
Trio, who will appear on this 
week's bi!) at the Empress The- 
atre, will be no exception to 'the

Two of the cleverest singiiqi^ 
and talking comedians in vattde-' 
ville are Mumford and TJhompaotu 
who will be se^ at the Empnun 
during the coming wedc This 
team came over the Qrpheum ar- 
cuit not quite a year ago and 
were one of the bigg^est hits on 
tliat all'Star 1>iU. Their songs 
and repartee are of the subtle or- 
der with a wholesome vein of 
humor limning through them. 
, Two clever performers who 
were with Lew Fields when he 
produced "The Henpecks" in 
New Yqrk, are making another 
totiir of the Siiliivan ^ x:oiisidiiie 
idmiit. They toured theVirqiit 
once before, bttt were persnaded 
by Fields to'join his. big musical 
production. As soon as this, piece 
played itself out* both Miss <Dar- 
ver and Mr. Murryrfelt the call 
of vaudeville, and immediately 
made a cotitract with the popular 
circuit. Both these ' performers 
are as clever as any in the coun- 
try, else they would not have been 
with Lew Fields, who is known 
to be pretty certain of the materi- 
al he allows to go in hi? shows. 
Mr. Murry possesses a resonant 
baritone voice, which he uses to 
advantage daring the act. 

"A 5?r.l<iierV Dream" will be 
p; J by Joe Spissel and a 

capable company of pantomime 
comedians during this week. 
The company being splen- 
did athletes and tumblers, may be 
depended upon to give a good ac- 
count of themselves from that 
standpoint. There is introduced 
during the act an aerial warship, 
said to be the only one in exist- 
ence, which will provide plenty of 
scope for pantomime comedy. 

Lee Zimmerman, a whistling 
impersonator, will no doubt suc- 
ceed, as he has done East, in whis- 
tling his way into popular favor 
when hie makes his appearance at 
the Empress during this 
week. He is said to be a remark- 
ably clever young man in imitat- 
ing bird^ and animals. His whis- 
tling of popular and classic music 
has also made him popular. 

"First and foremost in the suc- 
cess of a light opera comes the li- 
bretto," says Josiah Zuru in Musi- 
cal America, "and anything that 
detracts from a clear and lucTd 
presentation of the plot 1 the 
piece is bound to detract, and 
.scenes like those I have cited do 
just this.

"If managers, both American 
and European, would only realise 
this, how many failures would be 
saved them ! 

. "You have clever librettists in 
America; I can see tliat by their 
work. But the unfortunate part 
of it is that there are .so few they 
are greatly overworked and can- 
not in consequence give their best 
efforts. / 

"You have fine playwrights in 
this country who could undoubt- 
edly write excellent librettos, but 
few make the attempt and perhaps 
with good reason — for the amount 
-ol WQiAi spent in writing a good, 
light opera libretto would produce 
an entire play, and then the au- 
thor would i^t all the royalties in- 
stead of being obliged to divide 
them widi the ' composer. Of 
course when a sttcce8$ful play has. 
lived its life and passed to the 
storehouse the author is glad to 
w^come the. composer, who gives 
the piecCf a musicat setting and 
makes it over into a nE^usical com- 
edy or light opera, for that brings

^t fat cnougfe-^=1^t the taste 
of the beaux of her home, town 
Mr. Henry Blossom. has bounded 
the best musical comedy libretto, 
which has come from his pen sinee 
"The Red Mill,? or "Mile. Mod- 
iste." Given the combined tal- 
ents of Mr. Ade and Mr. Blossom 
the literary fabric ^of "The Slim 
Princess" is certain to be of a 
high order of- merit. Remains of 
course the big question of the mn^ 
sical setting of the story. Mr.; 
Charles Dillingham, who is l^iss 
Janis' manager, is a lavish produi 

discovered, to his sorrow. Lines 
and sittiaaHons 'that read wonder- 
fully well in type are— oh I so dif-

the farmer Matelinn. his wife 
Maria and their son Krvoanik. 
The latter is in love with Aliette. 
a young peasant girl of the vil- 
lage, who is unfortunately re- 
puted to have leper's blood. His 
parents are terrified when he re-

a leper herself, and many a young 
peasant of the village lies now in 
the cemetery because he loved

and Ervoanik decide to make a 
pigrimage to the Pardon of Fol-

hope thus to lift the curse which 
lays on Aliette.

Frederick which was celebrated

Johannes Hennigsen has unearth-

playing. It seems that the King 
excelled in a<lagio movements, in- 
to which he infused a warmth and 
tenderness ofN feeling that would 
hardly have been expected from 
the conqueror of Rossbach and 
the friend of Voltaire. "It is dif-

One reason why he preferred 
adagios was that he was some-

him eschew orchestral accompani-

was practicing. 

Toward the end of the Seven 
Years' War he sat down to play 
in a quartette and at the finish 
cried enthusiastically: "It is as

So utterly done up was Sexton Blake as he 
journeyed homcvv-ard that cvcnin;_ even 

customary habit of close observation lay 


in temporary abeyance. 

So it was with a start of mingled annoyance 
and surprise Uiat he suddenly became aware 
of a man sitting opposite him in the Tube 
train, watching him with a quizzical smile. A 
strenuous twenty-four hours with scarcely any 
sleep had left the great detective's nerves ra- 
ther raw, and he frowned darkly. 

The offender was a solid looking maa pf 
about fifty years pfag^, apparently pcciipying 
some good position in the city, for he car riea

musingly. "I have a great mind to take it on 
my day ilown to St. Albans. I was undoubt- 
edly a trifle short with the old boy— and one 
never knows." 

About three hours later Sexton Blake was 
being welcomed by a very beaining young 
gentleman just awakened from his afternoon 
nap. * 

"Never expected you, Mr. Blake !" he cried. 
"I am absolutely delighted. Quite alone— wife 
and girls gone out walking. You will stay to

on the damaged plants." 

Sexton Blake walked to a basket chair 
which stood in the centre of the conservatory, 
and sat down. As he did so, his eyes narrowed 
slightly and his lips tightened. 

"And you have no idea as to the possible 
culprit?" he said quietly. 

"Not a ghost of one!" replied Mr. Burrowes 
"If Eli Mason were about here now — but then 
that's absurd, of course." 

Blake looked up quickly. 

"Eli Mason— the Prescott Hall burglar" 

Mr, Burrowes laughed uneasily.

"Lummy, then, i s'pose I must!" cxclaimcl 
Spikey desperately. "But you promise to let

"I promise nothing!" said., the detective 
sharply. "But it is your only chance. And 
keep your voice down. If Mr. Burrowes finds 
you here I can do nothing, remember 

"Right you are, guv'nor!" said Spikey with 
a quivering little sigh. "'Ere goes; but it's 
precious 'ard oh a bloke to have been so near

Half an hour later Sexton .Blake stepped 

quietly into the drawing room^ and touched the 
bell on the table.

rather, shall do so shortly. •But come to the 
conservatory. Now, then, sit down, Mr. Bur-

could say no more, Init gaped at the detective 
in utter mystificatiofl 

Sexton Blake laiighed. 

"Stolen property!" said he. "Oh, Mr. Bur-

His host turned crimson.

A delightful and instructive lecture was .de- _ 
fivered before the Montreal Women's, Club 
i>y Deaii Moyse on "English as Spoken." 

Dean Moyse was preceded by ^^»|»^f"^" 
man. who dwelt on the wonderful hdrailii''the 
English-speaking world possesses in its lan- 
guage and- that cafe should be taken to pre- 
serve it in its purity. She did not object to 
slang, real slang, which meant -something, but 
slpvenliness in the use of one's mother tongue 
should not be tolerated. "Me m a l"jaodi ' -4*^- . 
mean" were given as two words pt^piUl^janis- 


Dean Moyse gave three examples of modes 
of treating his subject, the first, extremely 
high-flown; the second, containing long lists 
of words, and third, full of platitudes. One 
such platitude was the advice "open your 
mouths." It was possible to get into a great 
deal of trouble, he said, by opening one's month 
at the wrong time. The English opened their 
mouths more than the French, for there were 
many words like "pit" which it was impos- 
sible to pronounce without going to that trou- 

Emphasis was laid on tone, quality, and the 
necessity of avoiding monotony in speech. 
There should, said the Dean, be a bright face 
and as much movement as possible. He could 
forgive a girl with a radiant face and bright 
speech even if she did live "on" St. Catherine 
street instead of "in," as they say in England. 
When "in" is used it means the streets and 
.«;urrounding houses, and the use of "on" sug- 
gests to an Englishman that wejivc in the mid- 
dle of the road. 

The question of accent followed and led to 
a very interesting exposition of phonetics with 
the word "impenetrability," as an example. 
The shifting accent was explained and the au- 
dience told of the discovery forty y^ars ago 
that the German language had a shifting ac- 
cent, a discovery comparing in importance in 
its field to that of a new continent. The habit 
of calling "library" "libry' 'was cited as an ex- 
ample of the evil effect^ of tbr ---- -mplmsis 
of the first syllable. 

A comparison was drawn between Ameri- 
can and English speech and a distinction made 

between what wag now correct and wliat was 
historically correct. 

"The Americans have a right to speak as 
they pleased," said Dean Moyse, "but if I were 
asked whether they spoke English I should 
have to say, Ng." 

Considering th^ number of immigrants, it- 
was a matter of surprise that they had not wan- 
dered further from the English standard than:, 
they have. "Noo York," for New York," arid 
"I guess" were given to show the difference be- 
tween histGrical accuracy andpreSent day cor- 
rectness. The former approached the old Eng- 
lish pronunciation more nearly than "new," and 
the latter was used bv Cha^rcer, but neither is 
correct today. Tfcnry James, speaking at 
Bryn Mawr, told the students the country 
spoke abominably and that they should key- 
up, but, on the other hand, Judge Haliburton, 
"Sam Slick," said the best English was spoken 
on this continent. The chief difference, said 
the lecturer, was the stress in the sentence. 

"Rcrhember," furni.^hed,the next peg for an 
explanation of the silent "r" in such words as 
father, mother, sister, water, and so on. A 
convincing proof that the final "r" was dropped 
by correct speakers was given by the fact that 
the false palate used in phonetics to place the 
mode of speaking and covered with chalk was 
untouched when the last syllable was pro- 
nounced, whereas, if the last "r" had been 
sounded, there would have been a streak on the 
chalk. The long and the short "a" iji such 
words as "advantage," "Newcastle," and "path" 
was a matter to be left to the individual. Per- 
sonally, Dean Moyse said he preferred the long 
"a" but care must be taken not to err in using 
it too often, like the American girl going to 
England, who was anxious to impress with her 
English accent and spoke of "plahn." 

The name of a. popular shop was given as nn 
example of the wrong "o" sound so prevalent 
in Canada, and "bread and butter," corrupted 
into "breadam butter," to illustrate the ten- 
dency to neglect certain letters. "Toronto" 
commonly called "Trunto," was given as still 
another example. 

The difference between the spoken tongue 
and the printed page was clearly explained. 

"Wc arc speaking twentieth century Eng- 

.]ish with the spelling of the Tudor tinf^^; ' 
•can Moyse. 

The different dialects of England were 
touched upon and the survival of the East-Mid- 
land, combined to some extent with the South- 
ern dialect, explained. This w^s practically the 
London dialect and was the language of the 
Court, the Church and the Bar. It was note- 
worthy what little difference in mode of speech 
there was between educated Englishmen from. 
any part of the United Kingdom. .• . . ,

sounded and dropped, an amusing reference 
was made to George Bernard vShaw and, finallyt

And foolish-like I still believe 
That back some day he'll come again 

To where the Arran wathers grieve! 

Some day he'll come, wid parrakeets, 
Wid shells and sharms and furrin' lore, 

Come climbin' up the ould sad streets. 
And stop beside me waitin' door! 

And when I'm wid me wheel, alone. 
And all the ould grey house is still. 

I seem to hear, past sod and stone, 
A homin' step that mounts the hill! 

I listen as the sound comes near, 

(And now me ould heart flutters fast!) 

I sit and wait and sake wid fear — 
But iv'ry footstep, faith, goes past! 

Yet dusk by dusk when through me door 
There sobs and sings the ould grey sea, 

Och ! still I watch and listen for

Islands were favorite li^^l^ grounds 
among the Indians, probably- frorn the protec- 
tion the surrounding water furnished against 
the incursions of animals, and coffin islands 
may be found at different points around the 
coast. In Victoria harbor and the Arm both 
Coffin Irsliind and Deadman's island were used 
for this purpose within the memory of such 
old-time residents as Mr. R.T. Williams and 
Mr. Edgar Fawcett. Mr. Williams, whose 
memory' goes .back to the fifties when he went 
to school from a shack on Yates street op- 
posite the site of the present Prince Edward 
Hotel, believes Colville Island may also have; 
been used for this purpose as well, but di.s- 
tinctly remembers the trees and scrub on 
Deadman's Island and the fire on it described 
in the following account, which is kindly fur- 
nished by Mr. Fawcett from material 'he is col- 
lecting, and w'hich he will shortly publish in 
book form. Mr. Fawcett writes: 

"Like the Egyptians of old, the Indians of 
this coinitry had professional mourners, that is, 
they acted as they did in Bible days. The 
mourners, usually friends or members of the 
same tribe, assembled as soon as the death 
was announced, and either inside 'or outside 
the house they (mostly women, and old wo- 
men at that) kept up a monotonous howl for 
hours, others taking their places when they 
got tired. In the early sixties an execution 
of four yoimg Indians took place on Bastion 
Square for a murder committed on the West 
Coast. All day and night before the execution 
took place the women of the tribe squatted on 
the ground in front of the jail, keeping up 
the monotonous howl or chant, even up to the 
time the hangman completed his task. After 
hanging the prescribed time, the mur- 
down and handed to their friends, who took 
them away in their canoes for burial. In the 
earliest days. I don't think they used the regu- 
lar coffin ; the C(.Mnmon practice was to use 
boxes, and especially trunks. Of course for a 
man or woman a trunk would be a problem to 
an undertaker, but the Indian solved the prob- 
lem oatiilv, a,<s thev doubled the bodv uo and 
made it fit the trunk. For larger bodies a box 
was made of plank, but I do not remember 


seeing one made the regulation length of six 
feet, even for an adult, as they always doublet"? 
the knees under. A poptdar coffin for small 
people was one of Sam Nesbitt's cracker boxes. 
He was a well-known manufacturer of soda 
crackers and pilot bread, whose place of busi- 
ness will be remembered by many old-timers at 
the comer of Yates and Broad streets. 
" "The Indians rarely dug graves for their 
dead, but hoisted them up in trees, tying them 
to the branches or merely laid them on the 
ground, and piled them up on top of one an- 
other. In time they fell into the customs of 
their white brothers, and got coffins made by 
the' undertaker ,and many a time I have seen 
Indians carrying coffins along Government 
street, down to the foot of Johnson, for their 

In i86i Mr. Fawcett with four companions, 
all schoolboys at the time, were bathing on 
Deadman's Island, and had lit a fire to warm 
themselves. Broken coffins were lying 
about and piles of box coffins and trunks; 
these were set fire to, and the boys promptly 
made off to escape the wrath of the Indians, 
who, in those days, were numbered by hun- 
dreds. They made good their escape, and the 
whole island was swept by the flames, trees, 
scrub and coffins being burnt up. Since that 
time the island has remained in its present 

The Indians on the Songhees reserve, also, 
Mr. Fawcett says, buried at two points on the 
reserve, but when the smallpox worked such 
havoc among them, the authorities insisted on 
the bodie« being buried in soil, and 
When the removal of the .Indians was 
accomplished a special amount was allotted to 
provide for the removal of the bodies elsewhere.

' The simoon that overwhelmed Camhyses'

in England, over which it travelled froni west

Mr. George Heatherbell, of "Green Lea,"

cif a trip to Tasmania, during which he paid 
particular attention to fruit culture in that 
portion of the Commonwealth: 

Leaving Victoria on 29th of November, 
myself and son arrived in Hobart 29th De

good opportunity of looking over life orch- 
ards during the growing time, pn visiting

land ,&nd is cbmpoised of more or less sand 
on top and a brown or chocolate clay of vari- 
ous depths (sometimes 10 feet or more) un- 
derneath. This clay becomes friable and easy 
to work on being exposed to the air, and is 
the kind of land the trees do best in.' It doe* 
not seem to make any difference whether the 
clay is on the surface or not, Something 
curious about this clay land is that it is just 
as deep on the top of the high hills as in the 
bottoms, and in most cases more so. This 
gives a fine chance to i)lant on the hill slopes 
and have natural drainage, which is. as everv-

for shipping. The grower notifies the ship- 
per of how much .space he requires on each 
boat .or the number of cases he will have, 
and the space is reserved for him. Of course 
providing he applies for same in due time. 
The most of the apples go to London ; some 
to Germany, and some to South America, and 
a great deal of fruit goes to Sydney, N. S. W. 
They are going to reach the respectable 
amount of 2,000,000 cases for export this sea- 
.son. The prices at times are very high foi

west of England the, destructive effects of the 
wind were quite without preCedeafe Pefoe 
sums them up as follows: Twenty-five p»rks 
lost over ifioo trees apiece, while ih tht NfeW

churches; ovor 400 vrtndmilte.!^^|in6^diSSifcro<yed;u--

houses were laid m niins; 123^ jiersons were 
killed on land, and hundreds mpre ii^^rcd. 
'; At ste^ the loss, of life wa» far greater; a 
succession of gales preceding the principal 
storm had crowded the harbors and roadsteds 
with vessels, and these were driven awK>re 
by the hundred. Over eight thousand seamen 
are said to have perished, including some 1500 
men of tbe Royal Navy— the heaviest loss of 
life that service , has ever experienced, in so 
brief a period, whether in war or peace. One 
of the victims was Rear-Admiral Beaumont, 
Whose flagship the "Mary," fouttdcredin the 
Downs with the loss of all but one of. her 27$ 
men. In Jthe same perilous roadstead the' 
"Northumbcrlaiid" .and the rRestors^oA"

only concerned with gathering the booty that 
the sea had brought them, and cared nothing 
for the lives of the wretched sailors. It was 
an age in which shipwreck* were an important 
source of revenue to dwellers on the British 
coasts, and the professional wrecker still flour- 
ished. Only one trian was moved to pity- 
Thomas Powell, mayor of peal, a humble slop 
seller by trade. Powell first appealed to the 
custom house authorities, who refused to send 
out their boats upon an errand of mercy; then 
he called a number of citizens about him, and 
by an offer of five shillings a head for all who 
should be saved from the wrecks succeeded in 
enlisting a numerous party of rescuers. He 
next proceeded to seize by force the custom- 
liouse boats, as well as several other boats 
that were being used in gathering plunder, and 
(luis equipped he brought ashore as many of 
the unfortunate sailors as possible, though 
hundreds perished before they could be reach- 
ed These he fed and lodged at his own charge 
as the Queen's Agent for Sick and Wounded 
Seamen declined to do anything for them. The 
next day several died and were buried — again 
at the expense of the magnanimous mayor — 
and the rest he provided with the means of 
reaching London. Long afterward he was re- 
imbursed by the Government for the expense 
thus incurred; but his noble conduct deserves 
none the less to be recorded imperishably in 
ihc catalogue of golden deeds. 

Another striking episode of the storm wa'^ 
Ihe destruction of the first Fiddystone light- 
liotisr. Its. architect, Winstanley. was a re- 
tircil incrccr, wjio spent his leisure in devising 
mechanical toys, with which he filled his house

particulars of their death. 

The total loss of property occasioned by 
this storm in London alone was rated at over 
two million sterling, and threughout the ^^ohw- 
try at nearly five millions. Defoe considered 
it a more serious calamity than the great fire 
of 1666. On the 19th of January following 
the national disaster was made the occasion of 
a day of public fast and humiliation ; the Lofds 
attended a special service in Westminster Abr- 
bey; and the Commons one in ^. Margaret's

Defoe's account of the storing i>aih i> re- 
mallea|li|e^ when we aonsidcr that it was writ- 
ten lif^ ^Uaan a «ent^ry before anything wa^ 

fttorins in general. He places its origin in Am- 
ericii, where a tempest was reported to have 
beeri felt a few days before the date — Novem- 
ber 26th.and 27th (O. S.)-r-on which the storm 
reached its height in England. Of its further 
history he says: "It carried a tni<^ line clear 
over the continent of Europe, tr; I Eng- 

land, France, Gecniany, the i*.altick Sea, and 
passing the Northern Continent of Sweedland 
Finland, Muscovy, and part of Tartary, must 
at last lose itself in the vast Northern Ocean 
.., and in this Circle of Fury it might find 
its End not far off from where it had its Be- 

The idea of thus following the progress of 
a storm from day to day over the earth's sur- 
face belongs rather to the nineteenth century 
than to the beginning of the eighteenth. Had 
some one gone an easy step farther, and com- 
pared the directions of the wind at a number 
of places and at a given time with the general 
direction of the storm's movement, one of the 
fundamental discoveries of meteorology would 
have been anticipated by about one hundred 
and twenty years. 

It remained for a meteorologist nf our own 
times, Mr. Henry fl.nries, of the British Met- 
corologcfal Office. together a great

reign of Edward IIL and it is certain that it 
was the battle signal of the Black Prince at 

The adoption ol the Garter as its sign i^ 
explained by the famous story that the Coun- 
te^^ of .Salisbury dropped her garter at a 
state entertainment whereat there was much 
filtering among the courtiers. Edward IIL 
picked it up with the words, "Honi soit qui 
mal y pense" ("Evil be to him who evil 
thinks") and fastened it about his own Royal

Romantic adventures in the career of Don- 
ald Francis Steuart— Scton were described 
during his public examination in the London 
Bankruptcy Court, He stated that 15 or 16 
years ago he was cattle ranching in Montana. 
His father died in 1884, and Avhen the debtor 
came of age about 18 years ago he received 
from his trustees about i^ 25,000, but after a 
year in London he ran through the greater 
part of it. He bought a share in the Mon- 
tana ranch for £5,000, and sold out two years 
latei" for £1,200. Next he bought a share in 
the Green River Valley (mining claim) and 
got out with a profit of £800, and, as his 
share of , the sale $1,800. 

He was next ranching for eleven months 
at El, New Mexico, and then fitted out 
a treasure hunting expedition for Yucatan, 
Central America. This lasted five months, 
and he drifted back to New Orleans with no 
means whatever. Then he went to Australia, 
and spent two months pearl fishing at .some 
islands north of Caroline Islands. The pearls 
he took to San Francisco, and sohl for £6,000 
bought shares in the Red Star Mining Com- 
))any for £6,000, and in a few days cleared 
£ii,oo'.-). He went to New York and put £9,- 
o{T.:) into an expedition to produce a revolution 
in Honduras. He lost his monc\. In 1896 
he was in Matabclelahd trading and cleared 
about £7,000. He joined the I'ulawayo Fiehl 
Force in the Mat?beh It, and going to 

Angola. Portuguese West Alrlca, made £1,- 
500 trading. 

- He returned to England ill in 1898; next 
he. tried British Columbia, and gave £2,000 
for land at Cariboo Creek. In 1899 he return- 
ed to England vvith a batch of options, which 
he sold "at more or less profit." In 1904^ he 
prospected the remainder of his land at Cari- 
boo Creek, and found his land mineraJ value. 
Ho commenced to write .short stories, and lobi 
'T^i 1 .500 on working a betting system . I n t got; 
he began to' develop his Vancouver land, 
which was becoming of value for timber pur- 
poses. He mortgaged the land for £2.000, 
and put that and £1,000 of his own into clear- 
ing the land, erecting sawmills, etc. The mills 
produced a profit of £20 per mill per quarter, 
but in August, 191 1, a forest fire burnt out the 
whole of his claim. The, mortgage foreclosed, 
and debtor's interest was entirely gone. He 
turned to a naviation scheme in Budge-row. 
which lacked capital and an option on a mine 
in Colorado which fell through. His liabili- 
ties, (£4,200) were mostly to moneylenders. 




The national passion for symbolism and 
love of the mysterious is expressed in the new 
flag of the Chinese Republic. It is interesting 
to dissect the composition of the latest of na- 
tional emblems which has all but been accepted 
by several of the civilized nations as the New 
Standard of OH China. 

In the new Chinese flag there are five col- 
ors, blue, yellow, red, black and white. 

Geographically, blue in Chinese "tsin" 
means the east, yellow, or "huang,]' is the cen- 
tre, red: ^^ '.'tchc," :r, the south, whiic, ot "p^i, '* 
is the west, while black, or "he," is the nbrth. 

Figur?>tively .speaking, therefore, the new 
flag is^a symbolical map of the new republic. 

The second peculiarity about the ncAV flag 
is that it represent-? the five elements of honor 
in Chinese philosophy. 

White, for instance, means metaj, blue i.s 
wood, black \9, water, red is fire, while yellow 
represents the earth,

Prospect Lake 
Prospect Lake is about eight miles distant 
from Victoria by road, and there is a choice 
of three roads leading to it. 

The trout of Prospect Lake are celebrated 
for their qualities both as sport providers and 
as table delicacies, and the usual catch averages 
well in size, although the lake is not more than 
halfra-mile in extreme width. Tradition even 
tells of mighty four-pound monsters, though 
from half-a-pound to a pound-and-a-liali, Jfal

McCoy Lake 

Tliis is a small, muddy and marshy lake 
about four miles from Alberni. but capable of 
yielding good sport within easy distance from 
home, as the trout in it average one-and-a-half 
pounds in weight, though, as the water grows 
warm in the summer months, .the fish get 
rather soft; there is a raft here to fish from, 
and the flies recommended for the other water 
will be found equally satisfactory here.

An outing on either of the two first men- 
tioned lakes can hardly be beaten for good, 
all-round sport and for picturesqueness and 
beauty of natural surroundings. 

As a change from inland and lake triivel 
the sportsman should not omit a trip down 
the salt-water canal, which can be made either 
in row-boats or by gasoline launch. 

About three rniles from the Port Alberni 
wharf, on the right hand side going down the 
canal is Cous Creek, which affords fairly gpod

long and affords excellent trout-fishing in the j 
summer. Sport is also good on Cameron River, i 
flowing into the head of the lake, as well as in 
the Little Qualicum, which runs out of it . 

Ill a word, almost any stream around Al- 
berni will afford good trout fishing, while the 
sea-trout are very numerous in the fall in the 
Somas and near the mouth in the tributaries.

Dr. G. A. Still, chief surgeoiT of the A,S.O 
hospital and owner of the White Oak. Ken- 
nels, Saturday last got the surprise of his life. 
He was just ready to give his large pack of 
beagle hounds a workout, when his flunky, 
Doggie Banna, came running in greatly ex- 
cited, saying there were a milHon ducks on the 

pond. Dr. Still g r abbed hia gun and made fur 
the pond. The first shot he got two and then 
bagged one more. Now the surprise : Around 
the neck of one mallard duck wa s w ired a small 
cylinder, anSlniniTs cyHnHer was CsmalTBof-' 
tic with a note and five gold nttggets. tkt 

tion was attracted by a flock of pelicans wad- 
ing in the shallow water beyond the end of tlie 
range. A discussion arose as to the distance, 
and whether they could be frightened away by 
dropping a bullet in their midst. 

A shot was fired from a "Krag" sighted at 
1,500 yards, which fell shot. With mock de- 
liberation I set my sight at 1,700 yards, took 
four points windage, and fired — killing one of 
the birds. 

Several of the squad sank upon the ground 
with a request to l?e carried from the field, 
while I stood in open-mouthed amazement and 
watched the white speck upon the water give a 
few flutters of its wings, while the rest of the

Great Central Lake 

The distance from Alberni to Great Central 
Lake is ten miles; the sportsman can drive 
right through all the way to the lake from'the 
town. At the lake end of the road there is a 
cabin ifi which visitors can camp. There is a 
gasoline launch there and a canoe owned by 
The discoverer and locator of the famous Big 
Interior mine, a vast deposit of copper ore. 
The lake is abotit twenty-one. miles long and 
averages a mile in width. At the head of the 
lake IS another cabin belonging to the same 
owner. Two small streams run into the lake 
at the head, but they are not navigable. 

In the lake are trout, and plenty of them, 
from one to three pounds in weight. The best 
time for fishing this water is in June and July, 
and the flies that have been proved to be the 
best killers are: March Brown, Black Zulu, 
^Brown Hackle, Coachman, and Silver Doctor. 
There is splendid trolling in the lake and also 
good fly-fishing in the two streams at the head 
.is wf.ll as at the outlet. 

Sproat Lake 

The distance of this lake from Alberni is 
?lx miles over a good road, and there are sev- 
eral old houses on the shores where tourists 
can make camp. This lake ,the Lake Lucerne, 
as it has been called, of Vancouver Island, is 
thirteen miles long , with numerous arms. 
There is splendid trolling in this water as well 
as good fly-fishing, the trout running in 
weight from one to nine pounds and being of 
two varieties, large white-fleshed lake trout 
;ind also thr sea trout, which run up all the 
Islnnd ri\-ers \vherc\cr pn'^^iMc. Thrro i'; a 

summer; there is an old cabin about -a mile up 
the creek. 

Six miles or so from here, on the other side 
of the canal, is China Creek, where trout writ 
be found fairly numerous and easiest taken in 
Jttne. Tu ly - ;a>n4 - A ugU3t. The banks are thickly 

fH'IiKioded, S'^lKl^angler w^ho wants fish must be 
prepared to wade. A good place to camp is, 
at the Duke of York mineral claim (deserted 
placer diggings). '^ ' ' 

Granite Creek is about ten miles down the 
canal; it is a small mountain stream contain- 
ing brook trout, and the best month to fish it 
is July. The fishing in tlvese three creeks 15 
particularly good, owing to the low tempera- 
ture of the water coming down from the high 

Nahmint River 

is on the right hand side of the canal going 
down, to the ocean and about twelve miles 
down ; the river, which is about nine miles 
long, is the outlet of a lake of the same name. 
The fis'hing in both the river and the lake is 
hard to beat,- and this water, has never been 
fished much owing to the comparatively long 
distance from a settlement. The big Tyee 
salmon run up this river and can be freely, 
caught by trolling near the mouth in Septem- 

Cohoc salmon run up most of the rivers 
mentioned ; fly-fishing for salmon has not been 
practiced very much here, but they are known 
to have been caught on the fly, so that prob- 
ably experienced anglers who properly under- 
stand this branch of the sport would be able 
to successfully fly-fish for salmon ; those who 
are content with trolling can expect all the

1911, and signed' by R. E. Flynn. The -strange 
part of it is Mr. Flynn was operated on there 
^&r a fracture of the skull by Dr. Still, who 
trephined his skull, using a silver quarter to 
plug the hole. When Dr. Still was doing the 
operation his assistant remarked, "You are out

Not long ago while fishing on a river in 
Oregon I had a rather queer experience with 
a goose. I was sitting on the bank of a stream 
fishing when I heard the honk! honk! of a 
stray goose coming up t'he stream, I observed 
that it was coming directly toward me and 
flying low. Wishing for my shotgun, which 
I had left at camp, I pulled my pole back ovei: 
my shoulder and waited for the goose. On he 
came and just as he got opposite me and a lit- 
tle ways overhead I struck with all my might 
with the pole. I struck under his long neok 
several feet with the pole but not with the liner, 
which struck him sharply on the neck. The 
big sinker on the end of the line turned over 
several times and entwined his neck with the 
stout line and I proudly hauled Mr. Gander 
down from his northward flight. I know there 
is many a hunter that has hauled an old gan- 
der down with a shotgi/,n and a charge of «;Iini, 
but I doubt whether there is any beside-^ mv- 
self that can say they pulled one down with a 
fish linc.--Lans LencA'c, Coquillc. Ore. 

While on the naval target range at Mare 
Island Xavy Yard an incident occurrerl of the 
variety one has so miicli trouble to make peo- 
ple "swallow." 

The members of the "firing squad" were 
standing anuuL the ^luH)liIlg .slaiiu, vvailiii^ lOi 
the target to be set up, when someone's atten- 

India, ifi 1903. The rifle used was a 400 bore. 

"Lions— Seven killed in two minutes in 
West Africa in 1909. Rifle a 600 bore, double 
barrel. Nine cartridges were used. 

"I have found few definite records of Am- 
erican game shooting. Buffalo Bill is said to 
have killed over a hundr^ buffalo ih one day. 
In, I think, the American Field of a date about 
twenty years since, some hunter reported kill- 
ing eight antelope from one flock as it ran past 
him. I have no doubt -but that this has been 
exceeded many times. I have been told that 
one market hunter in Southern Illinois, in an 
early day, using a muzzle-loading rifle, killing 
one h^jndred and seventy-five deer in one 
month. He still-hunted, using a dog to track 
the animals, the beast trailing without sound 
directly in front of his master. The saddles of 
these deer alone were saved together with the 
hides — the .saddles selling in St. Louis for 
about two dollars apiece. 

"The English record on grouse is some- 
thing over one thousand birds in a day, made 
by Lord Walshingham. Since 1900 the Dur- 
yeas. of Ncav York, who took the shooting 
rented in Scotland by the late W. C. Whit- 
ney, killed over a thousand grouse a day for 
several successive days. 

"How niany prairie chickens' have been 
killed in a day by one man will never be known. 
The best work, or the worst as you may put it, 
was that of Francke, two hundred and fifty. 

"The English record on partridges is some- 
thing over seven hundred brace, made by thr 
Maharajah of something or other — I have for- 
gotten his exact title, as well as the exact nunv 
ber of birds he killed — also I have forgotten 
where to look for it now. 

"Of American quail an Oklahoma market 
shooter is said to have killed two hundred in a 
day. but I cannot vouch for this. I do know, 
however, of an Illinois market shooter who 

fairly upon the wing." 

By Currituck's long shore we lay 
And watched the east, where coming da 
Spun, threads of dun arid ashen-grey 

Along the ocean-line ; ^ 
The wild-fowl flying overhead 
Through leagues of misty vapor sped, 
Wheeled, swerved, and then with ,wing5 out 

SloAV settled on the brine. 

And five, with necks stretched out and on 
Marking the distant flight of swan — 
As greyer grew the light and wan, 

Came ship-like sailing by ; 
Their broad wings beat the air aus,tere 
And resonantly to the ear, 
The leaders challenge sounded clear 

And haughty from the sky. 

Then from. the reeds our guns were tiirned 
As we their naked course discerned, 
The heavy charges flashed and burned 

And belched with hollow roar; 
The wild-fowl rose in scattering pack, 
Against the sky-line looming back. 
While deep-toned echoes answered back 

And rumbled round the shore. 

Then paused the leader in the flight 
With mortal wound; and from his height 
He drifted like a snow-drift white 

In stately sweep along, 
A victiin to the fowler's aim ; 
And as he set his wings and came. 
Pierced through the air as some thin flame. 

His liquid, dying song. 

No more for him the Polar Zone, 

The trackless ways with stars thick strown. 

The chill air all about him blown 

Like tresses of the night; 
For liim no more to live and be 
As one with wind and sky and sea; 
1^'or him no more the strenuous, free 

Far ardor of the "flight.

Sweet, plaintive notes iirt. mellowed strain. 

That floated o'er the shimrrterirt|r pJain.

The greedy man took the bowl and

hoped he could get It for nothing, so 
he said: "What Is this worth? N;ot even 
a halfpenny." He throw tht bowl on the

Coming into the kitchen late ^lo 
evening we saw Sir Tom upon the table 
emelling an unopened bag of eggs which 
Was standing there, stepping back 
noicelessly we watched further actions. 
He cautiously tore tlie bag with his teeth 
and claws, stopping every little bit 
to listen. Finally the opening was largo 
enough for him to get out an egg by 
gentle little pats.

it around. Pushing it first with one 
front pnw and then the other, he rol- 
led it against the table log. Several 
times he did this .till the force with 
which it struck broke the shell, when 
he sat down to enjoy his feast. 

Thinking this act so clever, we hav.' 
often left the eggs where Tom could 
get them, hut never have we known hini 
to take more than one. Once he rolled 
the egK from the top of the table.

over to the left ^ide. and a ^mart coat with 
rounded corners and a Directoirc rever. When 
the coat is removed the blouse is found to be 
an adroit blending of black and blue ninon. 
with a touch or rose red and blue macrame 
lade. The hat--*a queer blue velvet shape — is 
worn with a lace veil, and the en.semblc is ex- 
cellent. \ second blou'^e of satin may bcror- 
(Icvod 1.1 \,ca: uith . •rinkled jabot of 

lace. Then, again, a vi r > .iiiractiv^e wine-col-- 
ored cloth suit, a purple kind of tone, has a 
cutaway coat and a collar of black satin. Here 
the skirt is made with a deep hem, stitched. 
arid the blpiise of soft satin has sleeves and 
upper portion of Easter-l)lue nincin. But for 
.simpler folk, the sanie thing can be bought ui 
less elaborate guise. For example a bright 
blue ratine is very smart, and the blouse of 
tucked ninoh, with rose-colored satin buttons 
and- a little strip of roise-colorcd embroidery 
laid upon the blue chemisette, will hold its 
own with ally expensive confection. 

For the smart luncheons that arc given so 
constantly the complete dress and attendant 
coat is invaluable. A molc> velveteen, with 
kimono-cut sleeves and the simplest of skirts, 
is enlivened by a touch of shadow lace and a 
bright strip of embroidery, and the coat, braid- 
ed'or plain, or made with revers of satin, is ac- 
companied by a stole and muff of fur. 

Alany womer?, however, prefer a soft satin 

. gown, a 'cashmere-. de ombination of 

ninon and satin at luncucua iimc. and they will 

wear with it either a Innp fur coat, or one of 

velvet or .velveteen 

For. the warmer days, the . I'rench houscsfi.

adniis-iun that tliis slur seems to takC: its :ori- 
gin from hearsay. 

"What the soldier. said,'- we know,, never 
has been, and never will 1)e evidence; 

But Sir Henry Biitlin says, 'fit has been 
toTd me that the lady secretaries of committees 
and business meetings are often astoundingly 
inaccurate in their minutes, that their record 
of those present ccinnoi ■ " - -li"' -pmi, that 
resolutions which were 1' properly 

worded in the report." 

,So far you will not be inclilicd to take the 
indictment verv seriously. 

.^uch thin;; these have ^always been 

said about the very best secretaries. 

You will observe that a very dubious, a, 
very insignificant inaccuracy may provide oc- 
casion for thcrti. 

A secretary has alwa}>- enemies! 

But what follows can hardly be dismissed 

so lightly : 

"I have even, heard of_niinutes which re- 
corded the wrong person in the chair: .ukI 
what surprised me niore than any other thing 
was to learn that when these inaccuracies are 
pointed out the secretary considers herself the 
aggrieved person." 

"That at least you will have no dilii- 
cAilty in accepting, as the inirc milk of truth. 

Moreover, if there be secretaries in this 
world who cannot even get a chairman's name 
right, w6 h*l best abandon their defence. 

Bitt what we shall not admit i,s that they 
are typically and -characteristically fcrninine. 

We shall ascribe them to that tmfcSrtunate 
class wdiich catinol tell the truth when it tries. 

And, with all due respect to medical au- 
thority, '.he iiphappy sufferci r< .jcrived

Sometimes the fillet of beet is larded. This 
is quite a simple operation, birt it needs a 
.arditig needle an.l .some larding biicoti— the

into slices about three-quarters of an inch 
thick, anil cut therii into rounds the size of a 
sherry glass or a little larger. Then laird or 
leave plain. In cither case, .season with white 
pepper, and lay in a dish, and pour 'some olive 
oil ovet-. Turn from time to time, and cook 
when required. The fillets will take no harm 
if left thus from, one day to another; indeed, 
they will, be improved by this lengthened mar-

In .some cases w iitlle chopped gaUic or 
onion, -celery seed, cloveis. and peppercorns 
may be added to the nil to flavor the meat. Tlu-

To the Electors of the District of Ea- 

Gentlemen, — I have the honor to offer 
myself as a candidate for re-election 
as yo»r r«prMi«ntatlve In the Proviti-

At the last election I pledged myself 
to support any government tliat would 
Introduce leglblation to provide for the 
development of Vancouver Island by 
railways and for the establishment of 
adequate connections between the lines 
on the Island and those on the Main- 
land. When the policy of the adminis- 
tration of the Hon. Biohard McBrlde 
had been fully explained by him, It 
was eo completely In ao«^rd with what 
seemed to me to be to tbe best advan- 
tMCe Ot tbe people of this constituency

in accord with wliat had

Shawnigan Lake will be more popular than ever this year. 

This is your opportunity to secure a fine large homesite at Shawnigan Lake at low cost. 

These blocks are high, close to the Strathcona Hotel, with good soil and a splendid 
view of the lake and surrounding country. Waterfront privileges are included in the pur- 
chase price. As you will notice by the plan, there are only eight of these blocks,, which are 
not likely to last long at the prices asked. For this reason and because of the fine situation 
of these blocks, you should investigate this offer soon.

ICodea of the Moment 
There is a great deal in tht •"sense 
of eultabillty." In regard to dress. It 
"•eems to me that this la most lamenta- 
.ny nofe-ft/jted iQ the evening, moxfi Pfir- 
■Qaps than at any other Hmt. Alost ot 
ua know the correct thing to wear on 
ihij street, and although many mistakes 
aia made with regard to afternoon 
dressea and toilettes de vlslte, ytt more 
are made with regard to evening dress. 
When to be gorgeous, and vvhen to 
wear gowns of studied, If fexpenslvo, 
simplicity, la quite a question, and one 
which requires a nice sense of propor- 
tion, a sense which Is sadly lacking in 
many modern day women. Some women, 
who dress most neatly and plainly in 
tht daytime — seem to "let'themBelvcs 
«o" at night, ana.tUofcJg'l^lBBye l?or- 
missable to be gorg«e# 0^<l!i|fpi!ltreme

iBfilBSfi.ilat W«r« «V«r »u»nored with tho 
«t "evening dress." Tben agsln 
of uncertain ago will sa?b thesn- 
sUtires with girlish 0implicity, while 
qiujtie young girls, and young matrons 
wiU ^edeck themselves with finery -in 
^very "questionable tiaste. Of course we 
"all Icnow the popular fallacy that if one 
is rich enough one may defy convention 
and dress as one pleases. But very 
few of us believe It sincerely. It seems 
to me, talking of evening dress, that 
for: little informal dances — mid-Lent 
"hops," small town and country dances, 
dinners and play simple little "dance 
frocks," or unassuming little dinner 
gowns art far more appropriate than 
the "grand toilette." But for balls— largo 

who knows how to put on her clothes 
with "chic" lookb eciually well, what- 
ever her toilette. Speaking of dance 
frocks for small affairs, the skirls of 
thfse continue to bt brief, as to length. 
A pretty Httle French model which I 
saw the wther day, had an extremely 
slim undevdrtss, tight ad to the skirt, 
and only coming down Just to the 
anklet Th'e' tunic, which reached al'most 
to the hem of tho underskirt, was a 
fascinating affair of very transparent 
white chiffon, beaded all over with 
tiny gold beads. The hem, ana a broaa 
band over the dtcolletage being delight- 
ful worked with the t^^ads In the Greek 
key pattern. 

t ' WBHty d a n c es , to w hi c h h e u ee ' p a r t iee 
are taken, large dinners or the opera, a 
woman need have no qualms that she 
will be overdressed. Let hty don her 
1500 gown if she has one. and Jewels 
To liorrespond. Of course, good taste Is 
another matter, some women never look 
so well as when they are garbed in clas- 
sic , oimpllclty — others can carrx wsth 
digi^ty a great deal ,of grandeur. * 

j^t there are occasions for every- 
thing, and tOL my mind it looks as bad 
to he overdressed at a small or informal 
ifunction of for a hostess to outshine 
all her guests in the splendor of her ar- 
ray- — as to bb dowdy and Inconspicuous 
at a really smart function and vice 
versa Beside*^ all of which the W9|ttaa 

The high waist line was' slightly do-' 
fined with a narrow' band of white i 
nlnon, and worn with the daintiest pair' 
o.f white satin slippers this simple little 
frpck-looktd very charming. 

Another little dance i;rock described 
by a friend of mine sounds entrancing. 
The underdress of the palest leaf-green

needs to be spent— but WILSON'S Invalids* Port is made 
up to a standard, not down to a price. 

Itis recommended and prescribed by some of Canada's 
most eminent physicians , and it is carried in stock by 
every druggist. 

Why, then, do certain unscrupulous dealers sell some 
of the imitations offered on the Ca n ad i an market, and

Are they acting fairly and squarely? 

Ask them the reason for the piracy I 

To protect you against these worthless imitations, the

fib* Vofieofftwr World, March 20, 

'fiid4ettei' day m the annals o£ progress 
for Canada was written large in her history on 
the 15th of March, when Sir Donald D. Mann, 
through his proxy, Mr. T. C. Holt, signed 
papers and documents in Vancouver to pur- 
chase one hundred and forty-five square miles 
lands around the head — water s of the 

tlU tw(|^fi^bf the St&ine Wver (ife Olam 
Skean In d it|eYetryc) separated froin those 
of fhe Skeena river (Clua-Kaas and Clua-Tahn- 
Tahn forks) and the head of the Klappan river. 

When these contracting pressures had 
ceased, then came the stupendous grinding, 
wearing down action of the glacial periods 
which followed the tropical climate under 
which the coal foliage grew, due to volcanic 

scii a h^dsotn^ dividend, - • -* : ' 

■•-,•_«■'■'•■ ".J ■ • ■ . ■ / 

The property was bonded on the spot ftom 
the owners and offered to his clients, the 
Quebec syndicate, who, however, failed to 
grasp the importance of owning them in con- 
junction with their own and refused to nego- 
tiate. Mr. Campbell-Johnston's elaborate and 
exhaustive reports were later laid before Sir 
Donald D. Mann, for whom he had served as 

consultmg mmmg engineer in the past. 

Sir Donald at once saw the importance of 
this fuel and it§„pQSsiJliliiies^ with Ms g^ 
the value of embryo resources, and so the re- 
sult of securing this area for himself alone 
through his personal energy and tnterpri^ei " 

Another of Sir Donald's schemes had been - 
m all-Canadian route to Dawson, with also a 
trail 6t steel through the Peace River country

ithe spheres of quartz lenses and niggerhea^ 
always present in all anthracite countries al 
the surface, here the true quality, free from 
high ash and top dirt, has been demonsti-ated 
to carry 84 to 87 per cent fixed carbon and from 
5 to 6 per cent ash, this without any tests at ail 
at screening out soft partings or washing clay 
rugs from broken sized coals, as egg, stove, 

iuaa i ' marketed 

lurti|>, pea, nut and the var 
graded sizes, to afford comparisons at its best 
„ with Welsh, Pennsylvania^ anJdP0<ailtOntas, all ;- 
of which coals receive careful njechanical treat- 
ment on picking belts, screens and wi^^jh^^ries 
to reduce quantity of ash l^efore being thrown 
on the market Costs pf mining, hauling to

fall to the province of nearly two million dol- 
Wsln alunVp siim,~and a perpetual vast yearly

^ftcinwich, in a professional capacity during 
last summer to open up coal seams beyond 
Groundhog mountain on behalf of the British 
Columbia Anthracite Syndicate of Quebec. 

He traversed a district seventy miles in 
length north and south by thirty-five miles in 
width east and west, one covering six times the 
area in size as that M^KMsd.coal in Pennsyl- 
vania, all studded here with otfff^:^ <>i this

Skeena river, over Anthracite creek to 
inountainjof the Devil-s Claws, across Beirnes 
cteelc |o Mooint Alec, onward across the l^aas 
river fork to near the Ninth cabin of the Yukon 
telegraph line. End pressure from the birth 
of the later basalts of the lower Stikine river 
created one notable anticline forming the 
height of land or divide of the watersheds to 



trict to permeate all strata alike, cpal, conglom- . 
ejf^tes, sandstones and shale$, having its gene- 
4l5-4n the stupendous intrusive tertiary basalts 
aifi^ otlier igneous rocks breaking through 
all obstructions of older formations on the 
lower Stikine and coastal ranges. , , 

This thermal process accounts for the 
splendid homogeneous grade of high-fixed car- 
bon, low volatile matter, and so a hard, smoke- 
less fuel throughout the whole eleven known 
commercis^^l^^ seams, twenty, ten, six, four, 
three feet in thickness, spreading over the en- 
tif e^^xtent of this fine coaL«t!«;a, .fttixtlW^. .,

Mr. Campbell-Johnston traversed all the . 
unaltered rocks of these productive coal-bca'r- 
ing measures in the interests of his clients with 
prospectors and others, and among other prop- 
erties chose these one hundred and forty-five 
sections as cofmmanding the approach to all 
the others, being nearer to tidewater, having 
a down-watar route without any adverse grade, 
and so its product, having a natural rebate 
amounting at least to 50 cents a ton mined at 
seaboard over all the balance of the field, in it- 

distant, Herewasanapportunit^ of tonnage for the road 'f^isf^ 

commencement in unlimited amount to make any line pay handsome 
retiirm. So Ifee cdmbinatipn of the two enterprises has been consum- 
mated with imsti^ble admntage th the near /ih#€ to the steamer 
trade, to the town ^Stewart, the Naas valley~nnd all northern British 

Columbia, ^ ^'v vl-\. - -., >;:£i.. 



Before long miners by the thdtlsand^WiU 
find work on this new coalfi^d* towns will 
spring up to supply their wants* families will 
increase in numbers, lumber mills will be busy, 
farmers will find a ready market and there will 
be a humming, thriving centre of industry, 
growing by leaps and bounds when the rail- 
ways take the coal away to be shot into fleets 
■.oi.^sl;eAm-colikr&IO£^aUrDort;s. from Alaska and 
Panama to P4taj^6rija jcn^jac^ross the Pacific to 
Siberia, China, Japan and Hongkong. The 
quantity of the coal in this territory is apparent 
in its abundance, ample to keep a large army of 
coal-hookers active for several hundreds o^ 
years. The quality, by passing below the out- 
crops past the clay-covered exposures, down to 
whcrethe stereotype rock, roof and floor are ic 
place, where the seams find themselves, has 
been proven as run of the mine of normal, even 
grade, where development has passed through 

this coal, with its quantity, proven quality and 
high calorific powers of British thermal units 
134.18, tq command all the s^i^ne coal trad;^ 
of the Pacific ocean in Asia, America and Aus- 
tralia against all comers, so receiving large 
contracts from the fighting navies of the world, 
who must have smokeless coal to' give no warn- 
ing as to their whereabouts, to supply the mer- 
cantile marine, ocean or coast bound, scudding 
in endless numbers and itineraries over this 
great ocean, soon to multiply rapidly by the 
opening of the Panama canal. 

This coal can capture the prairie trade o£ 
Canada and the United States as far east as 
Port Arthur in competition against Pennsyl- 
vania hard coal. Sufficient suggestions have 
been thrown out to demonstrate the vast im- 
portance of this new coalfield to Canada and 
the British Empire to keep the command of the 
world's, trade and its sinews of war under the 
Union Jacl<.

Added to this, Coquitlam wiU be a deep fresh-water ocean port, 
where any vessel can sail— at low tide the water of the Pitt River

Coquitlam will also have two tram lines undoubtedly in the 
near future. The power hues run through there now. - It will 
have cheap electric light and power, also at competitive rates. 

And, being an.ocean port, readily accessible to the coal mines of 
Vancouver Island and the rest of the world, CoquitiamwiU also be 
able to get "black" coal at the cheapest rates.
